Sure, you just draw the UI layout as an image, and handle all your clicks manually - that's how these applications do it. It's like an HTML imagemap (if you are familiar with those).

hi frank
first of all thanx.
yes i do know about HTML imagemaps...
i presume that we can also do imagemapping in java too....but will that not be 'inside' an application window...or at the most a JWindow?
can i get a UI with an unconventional boundary eg. the main UI in a circular main screen (not a rectangular app window)..
and all this as a standalone application..
thanx again
