Process Visualization in Java

I'm writing a stand-alone java application,  I'm looking for an easy way to walk a user through a process.  
I would like the user to at all times understand where his actions apply to the big picture process.  It would be nice if there were an off the shelf library that do this vs writing one from scratch.   Say for instance I want to walk the user step-by-step through 10 screens.  It would be nice to have one over-arching visualization.   So far I've tried to build one using the eclipse graphics library but its clunky and doesn't fit on the screen.

Is anyone aware of a visual easy to use library or framework that would accomplish this?

Any recommendations?

Java wouldn't be a good choice for doing a step by step instruction guide. I would choose to do it in Flash.

Is your standalone java application the instruction guide or the actual program and you are trying to incoorporate the walk through into it ?
