Is it possible to have a program start with a splash screen?

Would it be possible to have a program show a splash screen while loading with Java's latest release 1.4.0 ?
If it is possible, could anybody explain me how.. and maybe show me a little example? :)
Thanks in advance

I just implemented this with one of my applications.
I wrote a class which extends JWindow and adds a JLabel icon to the contentPane.
The class containing the main method instantiates this class, makes the window visible, wait's some time and deletes the window:
Through the Dimension object I calculate the center of the screen
=> Splash screen
import javax.swing.*;
import java.awt.*;
class Splash extends JWindow
JPanel pane;
public Splash()
super();
setBounds(300, 225, 300, 200);
pane = new JPanel();
ImageIcon image = new ImageIcon("logo.jpg"); //Splash logo
Dimension dim = this.getToolkit().getScreenSize();
int height = (int) dim.getHeight() / 2;
int width = (int) dim.getWidth() / 2;
int iconheight = image.getIconHeight();
int iconwidth = image.getIconWidth(); // Center of Screen
int x = width - (iconwidth / 2);
int y = height - (iconheight / 2);
setLocation(x, y);
JLabel label = new JLabel(image);
pane.add(label);
setContentPane(pane);
pack();
=> "Main Method"
import util.*;
import app.*;
import java.awt.*;
import javax.swing.*;
public class Main
public static void main(String[] args)
Splash splash = new Splash();
splash.setVisible(true);
try
Thread.sleep(10000);
catch (InterruptedException e)
splash.setVisible(false);
splash = null;

  • Can't access firefox anymore because "it does not have a program associated with it"

    Suddenly today I was unable to launch firefox as normal. Told that "this file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action" And that I should create an association in the Folder Option control panel. I have not been able to work out how to do this, and wonder where the program (that has obviously been there for the past few years) has disappeared to?? I am still using Windows XP....... could it be something to do with that?

    There are some malware infections that make it hard to run programs (EXE) files. Hopefully you do not have one of those.
    Could you check whether it is a problem with your shortcut by starting Firefox a different way:
    Start menu > Run, type or paste the following and then press the Enter key or click Go:
    firefox.exe

  • Powershell shortcut gives"this file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action"

    Hi,
    We have a server where powershell gives an error. The shortcut or the context menu for start button (replaced cmd in context menu) gives an error saying "this file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action".
    In some events, like going to C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\System Tools\Windows PowerShell.lnk and opening it results in bupkus. Nothing happens.
    Browsing to C:\Windows\system32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\ and running powershell.exe directly or opening cmd.exe and typing powershell <enter> runs powershell as it should.
    What gives?

    This is more of an OS issue than a PowerShell issue, IMHO.

  • Getting this error while opening a folder : This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Please install a program or, if one is already installed, create an association in the Default Programs control panel

    Hi,
    While trying to open a folder on my Windows 7 Home Premium, an error comes "This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this
    action.  Please install a program or, if one is already installed, create an association in the Default Programs control panel." I tried searching on the net but did not get great support for the issue when it happens with folder opening.

    Hi Nikunj Shah,
    First, I suggest you download
    Microsoft Safety Scanner or
    Malicious Software Removal Tool to run a full scan.
    The error messages here seems to be caused by the corrupted registries, which related with the folder association.
    You may take a try to merge the following registry settings to reset the folder association, before that, remember to backup your registry settings first:

  • This file does not have a program associated with it...

    Ok, I'm not awesome at technological troubleshooting, so if someone could help me, I would be grateful because I'm getting frustrated.
    I'm trying to play a silly little game online and it's telling me I need Shockwave.  I know I have it because I've played this game before (something time-wasting on addictinggames.com) and I found a file called Shockwave 11 in C:\\WINDOWS\system32\Adobe\Shockwave 11 with all sorts of things in it.
    I checked my Add/Remove Programs list and it says I have Adobe Shockwave 11.5 and that it is used rarely.
    Since there seems to be a glitch here that I don't understand, I went to the Download Shockwave page on this site and tried to download the latest version or whatever, if that would work.  The gray progress bar moves across under the "Adobe Shockwave Player is now installing" line and then I get an error popup that says:
    "This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action.  Create an association in the Folder Options control panel."
    What am I supposed to do?  What does this mean?  What file?  Huh??
    I am running Internet Explorer 7 and have Windows XP.
    I am a total noob and need to be spoken to like a child.  Can anyone please help me? 

    I clicked on your link (thank you - where did you get that?) and installed the Full version, apparently successfully, though during the download there were a couple of components that were troublesome. 
    The error message I got during setup read: "Error opening file for writing: C:\WINDOWS\system32\Adobe\Director\SWDNLD.EXE   Click Abort to stop the installation, Retry to try again, or Ignore the skip this file."  Retry did not work, despite having clicked it 10s of times.  I clicked Ignore, then got the same message again, but about a different file: C:\WINDOWS\system32\Adobe\Director\SwDir.dll   Clicking Retry again did not help move things along, so I ignored this one too.  What does this problem indicate?  Do I need to do something here?
    Those are the only errors encountered during setup.  I declined the Google toolbar.  The dialog box says Successfully Completed; I clicked Close.
    So I go to try to play this game as a test and it says "Installing Shockwave Components" and then I get the same error popup telling me that this file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action and that I need to create an association in the Folder Options control panel!
    What does this mean and how do I do it, since it appears to be critical to getting this thing to work...?

    Maybe the problem its on the Run part. It is supposed to open a navigator and go to the URL of the application you just deployed.
    Try deploying on one step and then Running on other.
    If it is the Run then open the navigator and test your App.
