The source code is at the below url. It is a simple orbit
program which using colored circles for the planets moons and sun. I would like to replace them with planet and moon
and sun images in 2d or maybe 3d eventually.

First of all, you've done a great job.
Second of all, yes you can replace them with images. Whether the image
is 2d or 3d will depend on the kind of gif/jpg that you put into it.

You can get the image by doing the following in your applet:

Image image = null;

try {
      image = getImage(new URL(getCodeBase() + logoname));
} catch (MalformedURLException e) {System.out.println("error, bad url");}

after you get the image, pass it to your paint() method, and paint it by using:

public void paint(Graphics g) {
     g.drawImage(image, x, y, width, height, this);
}

you can rotate the planets around the sun by updating the x and y coordinates
as the program runs.

Hope this helped!

Could you check what I did? It did not compile but it looks
about right to me. I uploaded it to
http://users.aol.com/WARPMOTOR/moon.java
http://users.aol.com/WARPMOTOR/orbcode.jar also if you need this
to completely check the thing.
The moon.java is the only one that seems to need changes. I
did not use your exact suggestion because I had another
java file which is almost the same, in otherwords it is an
orbit program and it allows images but it is not as versatile
as the one I wish to modify.
I only have 4 points now, but I will be willing to let you have
more if you want to wait.
Thanks

I forgot, you can see where I remarked out the lines and put in
mine right next to them, it should not be too hard to follow.
