Here, you will learn about adding event i.e. the rollover and click icon to a JButton component of swing in java. Rollover means moving mouse pointer above the icon on the button.

When you click on the button then another image or icon should be shown on the button.
This program displays a button on a frame. Button shows different icons like: cut, copy and paste on different events. At first, the button shows the "cut" icon and when the mouse pointer moves above the button then the button shows the "copy" icon and when you click on the button then the "paste" icon is seen. Following are the screenshot of the application:

This is the "copy" image which occurs by
