The below code displays JPG,BMP,GIF files but when it comes to PNG (or) WMF files the applet does not display the image Why ???
import java.applet.*;
import java.awt.*;
import java.awt.event.*;
import java.net.*;

public class Applet_mp extends Applet {
Image background;
public void init() {
URL codeBase = getCodeBase();
background = getImage(codeBase,"mp_j.jpg");
}
public void paint(Graphics g) {
g.drawImage(background,0,0,this);
}
}

I think java only supports jpegs gifs and maybe bmps.
so pngs and wmfs wont work basically, youll have to use Photoshop or Fireworks or similar to convert the graphic to a gif or jpeg.
