    Hi Prashanti,

    Unfortunately, there's no direct way to modify the rectangular shape of a button (AWT or Swing) even if you know how to customize its look-and-feel. Therefore, it's normal you can't find any simple code.
    BTW, if I were told to do such thing, I would use a borderless JLabel and a set of pre-build pictures showing the button I want in its different status : pressed, hovered, enabled, disabled, ... I would also make the mouse listener to check if the mouse pointer is within the 'clickable' area of the button.
