1) Can you clarify (greatly) just what you're trying to do?
2) Is this truly a Swing or other GUI-related question? And if so, how?

Much luck

When you use an object as a key in a HashMap, the object's state must not change as long as it is used as a key.

It's safest to use only immutable objects as keys in a HashMap.
