Java GUI, cannot load image- I am very confused!

To whom this may concern:

For several weeks, I have been attempting to write a Java program that uses an image as the GUI, with 6 spots on the image going to different pieces of code.  4 of the spots are Java coded calculators, and 2 of them go to pdf manuals.

I started using a text editor, and had success with the calculator functionality.  The GUI was really difficult for me, so I moved to NetBeans to try to implement this.  

At this point, NetBeans "cannot find symbol" getCodeBase(), and I have imported about every library I can think of.  Point being, I have code everywhere, and am totally confused as to how to get the GUI working, and to get my different calculators and manuals to all "talk" to each other.

Should I go back to my text editor?  Should I continue working NetBeans?  I am completely confused, and my deadline is very, very soon.  

Can anybody offer advise, or possibly even what the base code would look like?  I thought that I knew how to program before I took this on, and boy have I been schooled!

Any help is very, very much appreciated.

Thank you,
Chad T
