Hi !
I would like to know how you can set the icon of an application to your own gif rather than the standard.

try this:
myFrame.setIconImage(myImage);
JFrame inherits this method from java.awt.Frame

Thank you Alexander - your suggestion, unlike some others that use ImageIcon, also work when scripting Java in the Mozilla Rhino JavaScript interpreter.
