Problem customizing the look and feel

My problem is that i want to customize my desktop application by changing its look and feel with a customized one that i downloaded from the internet (a .jar file)
But it doesn't work : it compiles and runs fine but i keep on getting the same classic look and feel, here is what i tried in my main() method :

of course i added the .jar file in my project libraries.
Can anybody tell me what is wrong in my code and how can i get it to work.
Thank you in advance,

With a little knowledge, a cast iron skillet is non-stick and lasts a lifetime.
