If you want to paint on your frame, you'll have to override its paint method:

import javax.swing.*;
import javax.swing.event.*;
import java.awt.*;
import java.awt.event.*;

public class MovingFigs extends JFrame {
      private MovingItem movingCircle, movingRec;
      int x = 30, y = 30;
      final int DELTA_X = 10;

      public MovingFigs() {
            javax.swing.Timer circleTimer = new Timer(500, new MovingItem());
            setDefaultCloseOperation(JFrame.EXIT_ON_CLOSE);
            circleTimer.start();
            setSize(400, 400);
            show();
      }

      class MovingItem implements ActionListener {
            public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e) {
                  // Cause the ball to move
                  repaint();
            }
      }


      public void paint(Graphics g) {
            Graphics2D g2d = (Graphics2D) g.create();
            g2d.clearRect(0, 0, getWidth(), getHeight());
            g2d.setPaint(Color.red);
            x += DELTA_X;
            g2d.fillOval(x, y, y, y);
            g2d.drawOval(x, y, y, y);
            g2d.dispose();
      }

      public static void main(String[] args) {
            new MovingFigs();
      }

}

err ..... in the :
-------------------
class MovingItem implements ActionListener {
          public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e) {
               // Cause the ball to move
               repaint();
          }
     }
-------------------------

Repaint makes the component paint itself again without worrying about passing the parameter (Graphics g)
