Oops! I'm really not doing well pasting code - I posted two copies of
the same class previously. The missing class is:

public class MyImageApp extends Component{

     public static void main(String[] args){

         JFrame myFrame = new JFrame();

         myFrame.setTitle("Here's my Frame");
         myFrame.setSize(200, 200);

         Action myAction = new MyAction();

         myFrame.add(myButton, BorderLayout.SOUTH);

         MyImage core = new MyImage(myFrame);
         myFrame.add(core, BorderLayout.CENTER);

This is too painful to watch anymore.
