In what? A Swing application? On the web? On a KDE desktop? Other? Please put a little more effort into your questions.

Ofcourse that's possible. You can program anything you like in Java. If you're interested in programming great looking GUIs with fancy effects with Swing, then I'd recommend you the book Filthy Rich Clients.

Sarcasm will not endear volunteers to help you with your questions.

and acting the smarty pants "java-guru" without constructive suggestions wont help anyone either....people who are ready to help usually do so without beating about the bush or getting arrogant.

@jasper young:

thanks for the suggestion....i actually found a way to create this effect in swing thanks to the reference you made regarding "filthy rich clients"...(there are alot of web tutorials and bloggs with suggestions on how to go about this)...

best regards
