If you are using Swing then use a JLabel with an image icon.

thanx objects

actually wut iam doing is tht iam using some other API ok
it's bbn's  openmap application

in that they have there own methods to plot an image on the screen (map) and tht too using Lat Lon

so in tht case i can only plot an instance of ImageIcon class
i havent seen any mehtod tht plots the component

can u guide some other way pls
i know it's tricky or may be difficult also
but then also i have to do it anyhow
thanx for taknig interest
