Hello experts!
I'm new to Java. Is it possible to make a Win32 .exe file with Java that have the look-and-feel of a native Win32 application?

The Bittorrent client Azureus was created using Java? http://azureus.sourceforge.net
Does anyone know which compiler and Java libraries was used for creating the Azureus.exe?
When I use Eclipse to make a simple Swing sample program the interface looks much less like a Windows program than Azureus does?
How can I make a program that looks like Azureus?

You have to use SWT and compile with GCC.
You will have a win32 exe app that look exactly like any other win app, you will have no need to have jre installed on the machine. The final exe is bout 1.5Mb though even for hello world :)
hope this help

The look and feel of a JAVA program has nothing to do with the IDE you're using.
I deploy ECLIPSE and enforce MSWindows look and feel this way:
