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.

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

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.
