Progress Bar

I have main method which contains the follwoing code
       
         
         if (loginIns.isValidUser()) {
            //Instantiate the Splash Screen after successfull login
            SplashScreen s = new SplashScreen(Image.getIcon("icon"), new Frame());

            logger.info("Validated");
            AD.getInstance();
            A.initData();
            //initialises all the PanelControllers

            PFactory.getInstance().initialise();
            Fer.getInstance();
//      .. number of other things are instantiated

            UserInterfaceManager uiManager = new UserInterfaceManager();
            Util.setAppFrame(uiManager);
            uiManager.initialize();

            // close Splash Screen
             s.closeSplashScreen();
        }

Under the Splash Screen i want to display a progress bar which automatically closes when the splash screen closes (that is the application loads).
How can i do this?
plz help

if you are adding the progress bar to splashscreen, when the splash screen closes, progressbar will also close.

This should help: http://java.sun.com/docs/books/tutorial/uiswing/components/progress.html

Note that if you start any processes from a GUI (i.e. via an actionListener, etc.) during the time that the progress bar is monitoring, they'll need to be started in a separate thread.

What is this class: SplashScreen

You should add the progress bar in there.

>> splash screen is a image
You mean your splash screen mainly *contains* an image.
It's probably a JPanel/JDialog in which you can add your progress bar.
(Probably BorderLayout, with the image in the CENTER and the progress bar in the SOUTH)

> splash screen is a image

Use a JLabel to display your image, and either add your progress bar to the panel containing the label or to the label directly depending on where you want it to appear.
