Always on top window

Is it possible to create an 'always on top window' in java?

The short and perhaps not so sweet answer is "No." At least not in 100% Java. You can always write native code to implement this using native windowing system calls. However, if all you want is to keep a window on top of all of your subwindows in a master Java window a la MDI, then you can do this using the Swing JInternalFrame class or the JLayeredPane class. In each case all you have to do is set the layer (with setLayer()) of the JInternalFrame or component added to JLayeredPane so that it is higher than that of any other component.
