All Implemented Interfaces:
Accessible, ImageObserver, MenuContainer, Serializable
Enclosing class:

public static class JInternalFrame.JDesktopIcon
extends JComponent
implements Accessible

This component represents an iconified version of a JInternalFrame. This API should NOT BE USED by Swing applications, as it will go away in future versions of Swing as its functionality is moved into JInternalFrame. This class is public only so that UI objects can display a desktop icon. If an application wants to display a desktop icon, it should create a JInternalFrame instance and iconify it.

Warning: Serialized objects of this class will not be compatible with future Swing releases. The current serialization support is appropriate for short term storage or RMI between applications running the same version of Swing. As of 1.4, support for long term storage of all JavaBeansTM has been added to the java.beans package. Please see XMLEncoder.
