JInternalFrame is a part of Java Swing . JInternalFrame is a container that provides many features of a frame which includes displaying title, opening, closing, resizing, support for menu bar, etc. 
Constructors for JInternalFrame 
 

  1. JInternalFrame() : creates a new non- closable, non- resizable, non- iconifiable, non- maximizable JInternalFrame with no title
  2. JInternalFrame(String t) :creates a new non- closable, non- resizable, non- iconifiable, non- maximizable JInternalFrame with a title specified
  3. JInternalFrame(String t, boolean resizable) :creates a new non- closable, non- iconifiable, non- maximizable JInternalFrame with a title and resizability specified
  4. JInternalFrame(String t, boolean resizable, boolean closable) : creates a new non- iconifiable, non- maximizable JInternalFrame with a title, closability and resizability specified
  5. JInternalFrame(String t, boolean resizable, boolean closable, boolean maximizable) :creates a new non- iconifiable JInternalFrame with a title, closability, maximizability and resizability specified 
     
  6. JInternalFrame(String t, boolean resizable, boolean closable, boolean maximizable, boolean iconifiable) : creates a new JInternalFrame with a title, closability, maximizability, iconifiability and resizability specified

Commonly used methods 
 

  1. setFrameIcon(Icon icon) : sets the icon for the frame to the specified image
  2. setLayout(LayoutManager manager) : sets the layout of the frame to specified layout manager
