I wrote code for a paintComponent(Graphics g) and this code paints a gradient on a jPanel background;

Using eclipse, i've several panels (each inside a JTabbedPane) and this makes no one show the expected background.
i tried a variety of opaque and non opaque combinations involving JTabbedPane, contentPane and Panels, but without any effect...

Where should i put my method?
How can i have all jPanels have that gradient effect?
