    No. You can make JFrames will funky shapes in Java 6, but that just involves making parts of a square frame transparent.

    For your situation, just make a JPanel the size of the bigger rectangle and put whatever goes in that gap in the corner.

    Java Code:
    ******       ###       ******
    ******   +   ###   =   ******
    ******                 ***###
    ******                 ***###

    Put panel xxx inside panel ###.
    Avoid using setBounds() for layout, use a LayoutManager instead.
