I have to draw Mandelbrot set. I use a BufferedImage and generate each pixel in the paintComponent method. How can I use multi-threading? because I can not use g.drawImage in run method.

Regards,
Vinderela

Unfortunately, all the drawing needs to occur in one single thread - the Event Dispatcher Thread (EDT). Read Concurrency in Swing for more information.

Of course you can run multiple threads that all post the necessary events to the EDT using either EventQueue.invokeLater (*) or a SwingWorker and its publish method.


* SwingUtilities.invokeLater simply calls EventQueue.invokeLater.
