there is a way of getting the screen resolution in java. I don't know the exact call off the top of my head but I can look work monday if you need it. On one of our apps we get the resolution and then set the JFrame to a resolution to that. Seems like it's in System.getRutime somewhere, but I can't remember

Is this what you mean?

http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4.1/docs/api/java/awt/Frame.html#setExtendedState(int)

For my own applications (KDE/Linux) it's a bit hit and miss whether or not the frame maximizes on startup using this.

No there's actually an API in JDK 1.4 Swing for setting a window's state
to maximised which will properly maximise it using the window manager.
Check out java.awt.Frame.getExtendedState() and setExtendedState.

The get/setExtendedState methods were only introduced in JDK 1.4. Prior to
that, applications would generally use
Toolkit.getDefaultToolkit().getScreenSize() to get the size of the screen
and set that as the size of their main window, which is probably what
Charles Decroes was talking about.

Hope that helps,
Vil.

The window starts in maximized state, but it does not remember the previous
size after a restart.
That is, if you click the maximize icon, the window will stay the same size,
it will NOT return to the previous size ;-(
