In the code above there's an idea how to use your own designed components. I suggest you to take a look on it...
and maybe U can solve your problem.

Commented:
The Swing library that comes with JDK 1.2 (com.sun.java.swing... packages) contains all
you need to do very good GUI (as good as what MFCs allow, except that you have the
multiplatform capability of Java, pluggable look and feel, etc.) and is much more powerful
than AWT (much more components, amongst others). Any Swing component can
use the JComponent setToolTipText() method to specify the text for a standard tooltip.
A Swing button (JButton), for example, can have a tooltip, as it is a JComponent, as all
others Swing GUI components:

JButton button = new JButton("OK");
button.setTooltipText("Click me!");

Simple, isn't it? I recommend you the following link:

It could be worth posting here your impressions about the porting of your application (what
difficulties do you faced, etc.). Good luck.
