Assume there are many tabbed panes in a window.

If JtabbedPane is not active then change color of Title Bar of Tabbed Pane to gray, just like in eclipse,
If Active, the Color of the Title Bar of Tabbed Pane is Blue.

How can i achieve this Functionality??

I checked the basic look&feel class for tabbed panes, and found the following color properties:
  • TabbedPane.light
  • TabbedPane.highlight
  • TabbedPane.shadow
  • TabbedPane.darkShadow
  • TabbedPane.focus
  • TabbedPane.selected
  • TabbedPane.selectedForeground
  • TabbedPane.contentAreaColor
  • TabbedPane.tabAreaBackground
  • control
  • You can set these as follows:

    Now I don't really know which of these properties you should change, but you can find out by testing.
