Creating Graphics using Java

I am working on a program that shows a graph in terms of table of nodes and edges. It creates an adjacency matrix. Now I was wondering if there is any way by which I can plot the graph graphically. I understand that I can use AWT to create circles for nodes and connect them using lines(edges) by specifying the coordinates. I want something more. I want my nodes to be represented as Java objects (not mere shapes) so that I can handle events on them. Also, I want to design the nodes like the way we can do in photoshop or coreldraw. I don't know whether my query is relevant or not. Still, Is this possible.?
I agree. Here's the link:
