Draw all of your shapes etc. onto a BufferedImage or an offscreen Image created using the method in the Panel class. Before you draw anything onto the image, draw a copy of the image onto another offscreen image or BufferedImage. When the user hits Undo, simply revert to the last image copy that was made. This is easily done with BufferedImage - take a look at the documentation for the API. Hope that helps.
