      thanks for your replies.let me explain in more details.for example i get
      an image of a stero system and if i clcik on the play button it should play
      ,if i click on the stop button it should stop on.
You need to add buttons maybe over the image? If so, implement your own JPanel and override the paintComponent method to display the image
If you mean respond to events on the image of buttons, you need to calculate the coordinates and respond if the mouse iw within them
hi zolf,
        there are two cases
1. if u have seperate images of play and stop buttons then u can display that images on the seperate panel or label or button and add actionListener to them.....
using mouse adapter u can catch the click event and then for each seperate compenent u can write seperate code.....

2. if all the buttons are on single image then u must keep track of XY boundaries of that buttons.. display image on panel or label add actionLIstener then using mouse adapter u can catch the mouse click event, in that routine get the xy cordinate of the mouse on image as

compare it with the boundaries of the button and take action accordingly....

for more help on mouse handling see.....
