    What have you tried so far? What do you have working? Where are you stuck?

    There are countless ways to detect a collision, if that is indeed what you're asking about. Try to do a google search on collision detection, and see what fits into your head. I'm not entirely sure why you're using JLabels instead of doing the drawing yourself, but I suppose either way works.
