I would like to create something that is commonly seen in html.

However, I have not decided whether to use html, so I am just mining for
ideas how to tackle this problem.

I want to have an image and when you move the mouse over the images swap.
I think in html these are called image maps.

So I see that I could a) use an intro part with xml, css and javascript b)
do some sort of rendering c) use a browser widget and somehow fire events
in my application depending on which links are clicked. There may be some
other options with transparent windows, or even something I haven't
thought of.

Does anyone have any experience doing this, and if so could you point me
in the right direction or to an example?

thanks

ronald

For mouseover effects you could register yourself as listener to the
control to be notified when the mouse enters/leaves your controls bounds
and change the image when an event occurs.

An "image map" could be implemented with a SelectionListener that uses
the SelectionEvents mouse coordinates to decide what action to take.

Text Links are supported with the Class Link.
