Using java.awt.Graphics and/or Component in a Hud?


I am just getting in the business of using jme. Therefore I wanted to ask if there is a way how I can use java.awt.Graphics and/or java.awt.Component in a HUD, so that I can write my own Components and Display them in static way on the screen.

Have you seen JMEDesktop yet?

nope is there somewhere a tutorial, which explains how to use it?

There's test classes (jmetest.awt.swingui.*)
