My aim is to replace the Java animation and put a custom made animation. I am able to replace it with a static gif image(instructions given in above link) but somehow not able to replace it with an animated image( animated gif file). I want to show a progress bar which can indicate that the applet is loading.
Can anyone put some light into this. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Welcome to JavaRanch.
There's no hook for running custom code, and animated GIFs are not supported. Either provide a static image of your own, or the default animation will run. There are no other possibilities.
