Well hi,

I've only just become a member of Expert Exchange and I'm a student for the Information Engineering education. My special interest (and goal for expertise in the future) is Java programming. Now I've got this thing I've been searching for on the net, but can't find it. I'd really like to know if it's possible to change the color of a standard JInternalFrame inside a JDesktopPane. Its default color (Windows XP look-and-feel) is blue, but I'd like it to be green.
Is there a class/method to do so, or do I have to (in some way) create my own look-and-feel for it?

Any help and/or directions much appreciated.
