This is the basic plan.  You'll need to fill in some of the gaps, but I think this will help.

1) Create a class that represents the location, and and motion of the ball.
2) Create a Vector within your Applet class to store the balls.
3) Create an animator thread to periodically update the location.

class Ball
{
  public Image _image = null;
  public int _x;
  public int _y;
  public int _xDelta;
  public int _yDelta;
}

class BallApplet extends Applet
  implements Runnable
{
  private Vector _vector = new Vector();
  private Thread _thread = new Thread( this );
  private Image _ballImage = null;

  public void start()
  {
    // Download your image.      
    // Create some balls, and fill in the data members.
    // Start the animation thread.
    // Force a repaint.
  }

  public void run()
  {
    while ( true )
    {
      // Update the positions of all of the balls.
      // When ball leaves the screen, replace with a new one.
      // Force a repaint.
      // Sleep this thread for a while.
    }
  }

  public void paint( Graphics g )
  {
    // Paint all of the balls.
  }
}

I just created the same applet for "hateli".

The applet and source code is located at :
