There are several kinds of Toolbars :

1. A Toolbar which has set of buttons which the buttons shows the square borders
    like :

    JToolBar x = new JToolBar();
    JButton b1 = new JButton();  
    JButton b2 = new JButton();

    x.setFloatable(false);
    x.setLayout(new GridLayout(1,2));
    x.add(b1); x.add(b2);

2. Another version of a JToolBar is a Toolbar which has a set of tools but doesnt shows
    the square borders like JButtons, here is a sample :

How do I make a JToolBar like the one on the link ?

>> b1.setBorderPainted(false)

     I've already tried this before but it only shows the square border when you click it.

     What I wanna do is like the Toolbar of the IE6 on Windows XP. It only shows
     the square border when you put your mouse pointer at the top of the button
     it's like a mouse over w/o having you to click.

Try adding a mouse listener to the buttons. In the mouseEntered() method, do b1.setBorderPainted(true), and in mouseExited method, do b1.setBorderPainted(false);

Here is a demo of my suggestion.

import java.awt.*;
import java.awt.event.*;
import javax.swing.*;
import java.util.*;
import java.awt.print.*;

public class ToolBarDemo extends JFrame implements MouseListener {

  public ToolBarDemo() {
    super("Tool Bar Demo");
    JToolBar toolBar = new JToolBar();
    setSize(new Dimension(450, 130));
    getContentPane().add(toolBar, BorderLayout.PAGE_START);
    JButton[] buttons = new JButton[5];
    for (int i = 0; i < buttons.length; i++) {
      buttons[i] = new JButton(i + "");
      buttons[i].setBorderPainted(false);
      buttons[i].addMouseListener(this);
      toolBar.add(buttons[i]);
    }
  }

  public void mouseClicked(MouseEvent e) {}

  public void mouseEntered(MouseEvent e) {
    paintBorder(e, true);
  }

  public void mouseExited(MouseEvent e) {
    paintBorder(e, false);
  }

  public void mousePressed(MouseEvent e) {}

  public void mouseReleased(MouseEvent e) {}
 
  public void paintBorder(MouseEvent e, boolean borderPainted) {
    Object source = e.getSource();
    if (source instanceof JButton) {
      ((JButton)source).setBorderPainted(borderPainted);
    }
  }

  public static void main(String[] args) {
    (new ToolBarDemo()).setVisible(true);
  }
}
