I am trying to draw a rectangle with rubber band effect on a swing JComponent. If I draw the rectangle in the mousedragged event of the component, it draws the rectangle with flickering effect. Also, if I include the code in the paint method and call the paint() method through update(), it doesn't go to the paint method at all. I use the paint method for painting a selected component. In the later case, I have used the example to draw the rectangle from Java help. I am enclosing the code here with. Pls help me out. I know, its tedious to go through the code but pls help.

Thanks for your cooperation.
