Iam working on Internationalizing the Swing apllication...

The application has to support Arabic Locale...implies components are aligned from right to left.

Is it possible to display the close,min and max buttons on the left of JFrame?

by default the buttons (close,min and max) are aligned on the left of JFrame
i.e.

-------------------------------------------------min max close

what is need is (Arabic Locale)

close max min-------------------------------------------------

I suspect you would need to write your own titlebar component,
to replace the existing one
