3rd party API to enhance look and feel of swing application

Hello there,

Is there any third party API available for swing applications just as LWUIT is available for Java ME ? We have developed the swing application but now we need to enhance the GUI to the extent such that it should not appear to be a swing application with rich GUI.
Can anyone suggest me such API that meets the requirement I explained above.
I know we can set the look and feel by simply using the swing API's method but I want to go beyond that.

Thanks and Regards,
Girish

Check out the SwingLabs projects, particularly SwingX and JDIC.
