java apps don't look good help needed...

Hi guys I'm new to installing stuff on linux etc.

I just followed the instructions to install jre 1.5 bin file on my laptop and all worked fine...however I was expecting my java apps to be skinned like the jre 1.5 does. This is what I mean:

See how the it looks so rubbish?? how do I change this on linux so it uses JRE 1.5 look???

I'm baffled and scared as I'm new to all this stuff!!!!

any help would be most appreciated

Change the look and feel.

A good source of information is Sun's Java tutorials

Note that Sun doesn't package Java well for Fedora. You may be getting an older look from gcj.
