java super() main class


Hello all,
I know that there are probably a million posts about this however I can not find any that can answer my question.
I have two forms in Netbeans( Java ) one of the frames loads up another to enter a text address but the information is not passed back to the main form.

I have tried to use the super() function but it just passes a NullPointerException. I think that I'm close but haven't quite got it:


main.java:
Code:
public class main extends javax.swing.JFrame 
{   

    private winTwo           winTwo      = new winTwo();


    public main() 
    {
        
        super( "main" );
        
        initComponents();
        
        
    }


    private void initComponents() 
    {

        // some generic components

    }

    
    private void button(java.awt.event.ActionEvent evt) 
    {

        winTwo ss = new winTwo( this );
        
        ss.main( null );

    }    


    public void setName( String name )
    {

        System.out.println( "Set name: " + name );

    }


}

winTwo.java:
Code:
public class serverSettings extends javax.swing.JFrame 
{
    
    private static helpClient              parent      = null;

    
    public serverSettings( JFrame parent, String s )
    {
        
        super( s );
        
        initComponents();
        
    }
    
    
    public serverSettings( JFrame parent )
    {
        
        super();
        
    }


    private void btnAccept(java.awt.event.ActionEvent evt) 
    {                                          
        
        parent.setName( "Hello World" );
        
    }      



    public static void main( String args[] )
    {
        
        java.awt.EventQueue.invokeLater( new Runnable() 
        {
            
            public void run() 
            {
                
                main Main = new main( parent );
                
                Main.setVisible( true );
                
            }
            
        } );
}

here is a better example:

Code:

    private static frameTwo two     = new frameTwo();
    
    
    
    public frameOne()

    }
    
    
    // <editor-fold defaultstate="collapsed" desc=" Generated Code ">//GEN-BEGIN:initComponents
    private void initComponents() {
        jButton1 = new javax.swing.JButton();
        jLabel1 = new javax.swing.JLabel();

        setDefaultCloseOperation(javax.swing.WindowConstants.EXIT_ON_CLOSE);
        jButton1.setText("Click Me!");
        jButton1.addActionListener(new java.awt.event.ActionListener() {
            public void actionPerformed(java.awt.event.ActionEvent evt) {
                jButton1ActionPerformed(evt);
            }
        });

        jLabel1.setText("Should Change");

        javax.swing.GroupLayout layout = new javax.swing.GroupLayout(getContentPane());
        getContentPane().setLayout(layout);
