Hi guys, I'm using eclipse window builder for simple swing windows that i am trying to create. i have everything laid out except the forgotten username and password links. does anyone know how i create a link(not a button) like a html link that would take the user to a new window when clicked? what swing component would i use to do this?

edit: i need the link to take me to a new window in the program and not a web browser

i need a section of the window to show all data from the Tickets table from my database.. is there a swing component that would let me show a table from my database?? (see "your open tickets" section of my window)

** this question is SOLVED ** i used this line of code to set LaF

 

UIManager.setLookAndFeel(
            UIManager.getSystemLookAndFeelClassName());

 

 

last questioin guys,my GUI look different from when i look at it with eclipse window builder to when i run it.. i guess it has something to do with the java "look and feel".  and how do i get it to keep the same characteristics when run as it has in the window builder. here is what it looks like when ran.. (want it to look like the window in my first above post if possible i.e. have the same button/label characteristics etc)
