Pure Java GUI Link Text Question

I am wondering how to do in pure Java (Not javascript etc as my application is a Desk top application and NOT brower based) if I have a jlabel, when the user hovers the label I want to show a message box and then when the mouse moves outside the boundry of the label, the message box closes. How to do this?

Yes I know the tooltip, but that is pretty constrained for my requirement. The message I cam planning to popup is not just text. I has several graphical components such as images etc. the message box is fairly big. So it is not possible to achieve all these in a ToolTip.

Finally I decided to use a JWindow on mouse listners.
Yes, a JWindow is essentially an undecorated window
