Hi,

I am developing an application using Swings. But the default GUI for windows looks dry. Is there any way to change the look and feel of swings components ??
To make them more eye catchy ..

Is there any way to apply look and feel of Mac to these components ??




Thanks,

If you google around, you will find more.
One I love is http://napkinlaf.sourceforge.net/

If I remember correctly, it is illegal to apply the Mac LAF on non Mac platforms.
