Hi Abhay,
Whenever you implement an interface,make sure you satisfy the contract specified by the interface.
The error message clearly states that
mouseReleased(java.awt.event.MouseEvent) method declared in the interface is not implemented in your class.

You can just provide a dummy implementation if you do not wish to handle the mousereleased event.
public void mouseReleased(java.awt.event.MouseEvent e)
{
`
}

Thanks
Yogi

thanks yogi ,
it works after one more .....mousePressed event , so we can say that it was necessary to put that dummy code because we implemented related interfaces .. right ?? or there is another reason behind it ??

If a class implements an interface it must implement all methods of that interface. In those cases you don't want to, you must provide skeleton implementations - empty bodies where void is returned, and returning some constant where a return value is required.
