You could use a timer and call "setIconImage(Image image)" on the frame to alternate between two images. Unfortunately, windows limits the size of the image. I don't know of any way to affect the background of the tab in java - maybe someone else has an idea?


The nice thing about Standards is that there are so many to choose from!
