Hi guys,

I am working on a project that has its User Interace built in Swing. I need to customize the look of my JFrame. To be more specific, i need to change the shape of my JFrame(i.e. it might be oval or some other shape but not rectangle)

Can someone suggest some tips or point to some tutorials to do this issue.
