Change the Look and Feel of a Java Application

Use the following code to give your Java app a Windows look and feel:

UIManager.setLookAndFeel("com.sun.java.swing.plaf.windows.WindowsLookAndFe
el");
	Ensure the class "com.sun.java.swing.plaf.windows.WindowsLookAndFeel" is
in your jvm bootstrap classpath. Mostly it can be found in your
jdk/jre/lib/rt.jar
For metal look and feel
	import javax.swing.plaf.metal.*;
        UIManager.setLookAndFeel(new MetalLookAndFeel());

Similarily you can set theme for GTK+,  CDE/Motif or your own theme
try  {
	javax.swing.plaf.metal.MetalLookAndFeel.setCurrentTheme(new
MyMetalTheme());
}catch(...)  { ... }

Where MyTheme looks like:

public class MyTheme extends DefaultMetalTheme{
  public MyTheme() {   super();  }
  protected ColorUIResource getPrimary2() {
   	return new ColorUIResource(java.awt.Color.red);
  }
}
