I have wrote a menu which is for a college assignment and I cannot get my background image to display and I was trying to add an icon too, I have checked the web and have tried most of the help I found but it still does not work, can anybody help me with this please, i am using eclipse juno thank you, and how would I actually give the menu functionality, do I need to write the program again using Inheritance, I am very new to java.

What background image? I can't see any code that attempts to display one.

Check out this thread http://www.coderanch.com/t/601266/GUI/java/Repainting-JPanel-componentResized-event#2747070 on drawing an image on a panel.

and how would I actually give the menu functionality

You add Actions or ActionListeners to the menu items.
