Sorry, but from standalone application you cannot load gif from URL. Why should you do this ?
As far I know, there is no more support from sun.net.* classes in next versions of Java. So. Forget it.
Load images locally, then again what if you give aplication to someone who has not access to inet. He would be lost.
It is true updates would be much easier, but perhaps this will be possible in future, now it is at the moment impossible.
