It's a once and for all operation - not sure why 'sometimes' comes into it. It's meant to be done at the entry point of your program

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

It depends on what L&F you are using. What L&F did you want it to work for?

Make sure you do it *right at the begining of your app, *before* you create your gui.

Before you call setVisible () to your JFrame (or whatever top level window you have), call UIManager.put () - better to call it right at the start of the program.
