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

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

Then simply have your componant paint the ImageIcon. JLabel already supports this.
