Java: show GIF image doesn't work

Image waitImage = null;
        JLabel l1;
        try {
            waitImage ="/images/error.gif"));
            l1 = new JLabel(new ImageIcon(waitImage));
            l1.setBounds(20, 20, 100, 100);

        } catch (IOException e) {
            // TODO Auto-generated catch block

The image is shown, but it's not animated. I'm using the following Gif:

Any idea?


ImageIO returns BufferedImage

Use new ImageIcon(new URL("path to resource"));
