Has anybody had any experience with modifying the L&F of the border of a Frame or JFrame? The kind of thing I am talking about is similar to what WinAmp does. I'd like to create an app that has docking windows with very small frames.
Thanks in advance. Code examples would be wonderful!

Have you looked at the Window class?

This is something you cannot do up through JDK1.3 unless you extend the Window class and build your own frame/dialog type of component. In JDK1.4 the Swing team plans to add such functionality..
