Not possible i'm afraid. JFrame is a top level window and they are never round

You'd need native code to 'fake' roundness with transparency. Try this

All components are rectangular by definition, and top level windows are tied to the native window system which is also rectangular.

you can give a component the illusion of not being rectangular by leaving the background transparent.

How does that help you exactly?
(and you don't need to write any native code)

I think you'll need to check it out from Subversion (for which you'll need an account)
