Start a thread to dispose it, something like:

 public static void main( String[] args )
{
    String baseDir="";
    if(args.length>0){ baseDir=args[0]; }
    splashScreen = new SplashScreen(10);
    new Thread(new Runnable() { public void run()
    {
       try { Thread.sleep(10000); } catch (Exception ex) {}
       splashScreen.dispose();
    }}).start();
    Bella bella= new bella();
}

Pretty Fast Guys;

Here are my share :

class SplashWindow3 extends JWindow
{
    public SplashWindow3(String filename, Frame f, int waitTime)
    {
        super(f);
        JLabel l = new JLabel(new ImageIcon(filename));
        getContentPane().add(l, BorderLayout.CENTER);
        pack();
        Dimension screenSize =
          Toolkit.getDefaultToolkit().getScreenSize();
        Dimension labelSize = l.getPreferredSize();
        setLocation(screenSize.width/2 - (labelSize.width/2),
                    screenSize.height/2 - (labelSize.height/2));
        addMouseListener(new MouseAdapter()
            {
                public void mousePressed(MouseEvent e)
                {
                    setVisible(false);
                    dispose();
                }
            });
        final int pause = waitTime;
        final Runnable closerRunner = new Runnable()
            {
                public void run()
                {
                    setVisible(false);
                    dispose();
                }
            };
        Runnable waitRunner = new Runnable()
            {
                public void run()
                {
                    try
                        {
                            Thread.sleep(pause);
                            SwingUtilities.invokeAndWait(closerRunner);
                        }
                    catch(Exception e)
                        {
                            e.printStackTrace();
                            // can catch InvocationTargetException
                            // can catch InterruptedException
                        }
                }
            };
        setVisible(true);
        Thread splashThread = new Thread(waitRunner, "SplashThread");
        splashThread.start();
    }
}

>> Thread.sleep(pause);

Give a interval something like 1000

Hope it helps . . .
