Hello, it is not possible to put the image directly on the JFrame or on a JPanel. One way to make it is to set the image (should have good size)on a JLabel and when you add the JLabel it will appear as it is a background image. You can also add components over this image. This way you can achieve your requirement of background image to the JFrame.

You can't draw it to the JFrame itself (just like the previous poster said), but instead of using JLabel, I would create a custom panel to display the image so I could add components on top of it easily. Then you can set that panel as the content pane of the frame. Below is some code I had that shows how to do this:

 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
