In JAVA 5 an iconified application starts blinking when you add a new component to the main frame.
I don't know why, but it serves your needs in this case.

CEHJ's solution brings up an icon in the system tray, that stays there.
That's new, but not what you asked for.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

I'm afraid that 6 only ADDs the system tray option.

Okay Joop, that sounds good,

but can you explain what you mean with iconified and component?

you mean i should put the frame iconified and then i place a new component?

I noticed accidently that when I added a button to my iconified (thus invisible)
JFrame (in effect to some JPanel on it) the taskbar icon started to flash.
