User Interface Look & Feel

In java all the user interface components have the look & feel as defined by the Laf. However there is no provision to remove decorations. Is it possible?
For example Dialog boxes always come with a close button (a cross on the top right corner). Is it possible to remove the close button?
In other words can I disable the decorations.
