Does your IDE have a Search? Try looking for where there is definition of a JFrame.
Does the main class extend JFrame?

I do have the search and I see the instances of JFrame, but I am still not sure which one is causing the issue, can someone explain it and point out what the problem is so i can correct it and not do it again.
