Thanks for reading - I would appreciate some advice from the gurus !!
We want to provide a user interface that allows users to drag objects onto an image and drop them there. We need to be able to track the position of the dragged images, so that we can redisplay the resulting map later, so that the user can change the positions of the images if he wants to. Finally, we want to be able to make the dragged images 'flash' - change colors repeatedly as a warning signal.
The idea is to allow the user to create a map of devices he is interested in so that he can leave the map up on his PC all day and watch for these flashing 'alerts'.
Whew !! A tall order methinks ! Can this be done in Swing ?
Thanks in advance for any insight !!

Yes, this can be done in Swing.

What part are you having the problem with? Drag n' drop, images, the flashing alerts, or all of the above?
