Linking a JFrame to a JButton on another JFramae!

Hi,

I'm new to Netbeans and I know the concept of OOP Java programming!  I have created a Netbeans Platform project in Netbeans and linked a JForm to my core module where I have a few tabs and JButtons Containers.  I want the user to click one of these buttons and have a new window opened where the user can configure things.  I would also like to have this performed on menu items like someone clicking on File -> New and a new window opens up!  

I'm also looking for a very easy to understand tutorial where I could get a grip of the Netbeans IDE and Netbeans platform in general!

Thanks in advanced,
Sam

You should normally have only one JFrame per application. A configuration window should normally be a JDialog or subclass

Also go to youtube and type NetBeans in the youtube search - the video tutorials
with biggest numbers of views can be useful for initial understanding
