Are you using AWT or Swing?

AWT uses native peers. If you want the effects, you will have to migrate to swing. It is not that difficult as you think. For almost every AWT component you have a corresponding JComponent.

You might want to take a look at this nice article which talks about AWT->Swing migration and its pros and cons.

Best of luck.
