Here is simple example of static image to be displayed as logo on the start-up/splash screen.
This can be improved by creating animation out of series of images or use of flash file through Project Capuchin library.
As for location of image file this was placed in new folder called "res" as resources. The folder is on same level as "myProject" folder that holds Java classes. If you decide to have "res" folder placed inside "myProject" folder then image path will be /myProject/res/IMAGE_NAME ProjectMIDlet.java

package myProject;
