Application Security Testing: An Integral Part of DevOps

JFrame Look and Feel

Is there any way I can make a JFrame look like JInternalFrame? It looks bad at runtime when you change the look-and-feel, but the main frame doesn't change.

This is currently a deficiency in the Swing classes. A top level window is forced to assume the look-and-feel of the native window system. There is no technical reason why it would not be possible to make a borderless frame part of the standard classes. It could provide its own titlebar, border, and other decorations.

However, doing this would disable the native window manager operations, such as right-clicking on the titlebar in Windows 95/98/NT. This appears to be why it wasn't done.
