Howdy ranchers,

I decided to add more standard gui to my application: menu and toolbar. If I use toolbar then I must use the icons but I'm not a good at graphics myself. Do you think I can download already made, free icons (from Sun or Eclipse for instance), copy them into my jar file, and use them in my application? Or maybe I canot use icons which are not made by me?

Best Regards,
Pawel

If you draw your own icons, it may take too much time and not look good. If you use a downloaded icon, you risk automatic failure for submitting something you did not write. So why risk it while there is nothing to gain?

Hi Pawel,

You might be interested in Sun's Java look and feel Graphics Repository. These icons are available for use (read the license, and follow it's instructions).

Regards, Andrew
