Making windows (frames) flash with java

For people using windows you would notice that some apps make the button on the start bar blink to get the user's attention. I was wondering how to make a java frame or JFrame that does that.

Again: Look at the SDK page for the Frame class and see if there's a function that does what you want to do. (If you don't find one, don't be surprised. Flashing windows is something that is somewhat specific to the Windows platform, so it's unlikely to be supported by Java.)
