Description xsoteria 2007-09-27 01:39:13 UTC
I created from the "New JFrame Form" in the editor. Add nothing to it, save it, and add it to the
palette manager using add from the library. When the innocentFrame is dragged to the design view of another JFrame, an
error message is shown: "The component cannot be instantiated. Please make sure it is a javabean.".

The JFrame form has the defaultCloseOperation property set to EXIT_ON_CLOSE. Such a frame can't be instantiated in the 
IDE because it could exit the entire JVM. For reusable frames set the property to something else, e.g. DISPOSE.
