Flashing JFrame

Hi,

I would like to create a JFrame with two specifal features:

JFrame should not grab focus while maximized from minimized state.
When a JFrame created or became maximized from minimized state, it should flash in the Windows bar until a user will grant a focus to it. (like as in ICQ clients ).
Does anybody know how the second requirement can be implemented?

Little self-explained example:


Thanks!

Thanks for telling us that, but don't you think you should inform the good folk at java.net about the multiple cross posts?

Sure, my fault.

Maybe you can advise me something regarding the cause of topic?

travishein suggested an approach involving JNI. Did you try it?

Yep, but this is not very convenient way, and, unfortunately, not applicable in my particular case. I'm still hoping that the native Java solution exists.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
