Perhaps java.awt.Toolkit.getDefaultToolkit().getImage( String ) is what you are after.

Hi,Dirk, you know, the class you offered is a abstract class ,but I don't know how to get a instance of that class , if I don't want to create a subclass of it,can I use java.awt.toolkit class?

Toolkit.getDefaultToolkit() gets the real Toolkit on your system... the implementing class is package private because it changes based on system and you shouldn't access it directly.
