    Default Image without a frame, is it possible?

    Hello

    Does anyone know if it is possible to open an image without first having to load it on to a frame? I want to display an image, my university logo, which will act as a presentation/introductory window to my program, a database.

    The frame is good but if I could remove the top bar and just see the picture it'd be better.

    Thanks

    Perhaps a splash screen.

    The How to Make Frames page of the Tutorial also discusses specifying window decorations.

    Using a splash screen (which is available since Java 5) definitely solves your problem.
