Use JPanel instead of Canvas.
Canvas is a heavy weight AWT component where as JPanel is a light weight Swing component and both of them serve the same purpose.
To make the it transperant call

Hi,
I was too facing the same problem. But anyway, the alternate approach may be to follow a different path.

Follow the hyper link. You should get the solution.
OnJava)

You use the AWT Canvas in SWT Application.
