    Have patience, and a bit more information would help get you a quicker response. Such as what you are trying to do. Is this an applet? A swing component?

    Go through the Swing tutorial (link below) and learn how not to better make use of the features of your IDE.
    Trail: Creating a GUI With JFC/Swing (The Java™ Tutorials)

    Yes, it also covers how to correctly perform custom painting.
