Selecting a Radio Button component in Java

This program shows five radio buttons with labeled by "First", "Second", "Third", "Fourth" and "Fifth". This program also show a label which contains the text "Roseindia.net" but when you click on any radio button from a ButtonGroup the text of the selected radio button is shown on the label and a message box will be shown with message holds the selected radio button label. This is done through the generating event for the different-different radio buttons. Following are the screen shots for the result of the given program:

For this purposes, there are some APIs or methods have been used as follows:

getActionCommand():
This is the method of the ActionEvent class which returns the source title in string of the generated event.

Here is the code of the program:

import javax.swing.*;
import java.awt.*;
import java.awt.event.*;

public class SelectRadioButton{
  JLabel label;
  public static void main(String[] args){
  SelectRadioButton sr = new SelectRadioButton();
  }

  public SelectRadioButton(){
  JFrame frame = new JFrame("Radio button selection");
  JRadioButton first = new JRadioButton("First");
  JRadioButton second = new JRadioButton("Second");
  JRadioButton third = new JRadioButton("Third");
  JRadioButton fourth = new JRadioButton("Fourth");
  JRadioButton fifth = new JRadioButton("Fifth");
  JPanel panel = new JPanel();
  panel.add(first);
  panel.add(second);
  panel.add(third);
  panel.add(fourth);
  panel.add(fifth);
  ButtonGroup bg = new ButtonGroup();
  bg.add(first);
  bg.add(second);
  bg.add(third);
  bg.add(fourth);
  bg.add(fifth);
  first.addActionListener(new MyAction());
  second.addActionListener(new MyAction());
  third.addActionListener(new MyAction());
  fourth.addActionListener(new MyAction());
  fifth.addActionListener(new MyAction());
  label = new JLabel("Roseindia.net");
  frame.add(panel, BorderLayout.NORTH);
  frame.add(label, BorderLayout.CENTER);
  frame.setSize(400400);
  frame.setVisible(true);
  frame.setDefaultCloseOperation(JFrame.EXIT_ON_CLOSE);
  }

  public class MyAction implements ActionListener{
  public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e){
  label.setText(e.getActionCommand());
  JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(null,"This is the " + e.getActionCommand()
