Double Titlebar for JFrame in Swing

Yeah! I am excited to share this, a silly thing, but weird. Here is how to set a double titlebar for JFrame in swing, one comes with a default look and feel and the other is a normal title bar (based on OS). Now, just see the image before the program.

A JFrame with Double titlebar

import javax.swing.*;
import java.awt.*;
class DoubleTitleBar extends JFrame
JButton b;

    public DoubleTitleBar()
    private void createAndShowGUI()
        setTitle("Double Title bar");
        setLayout(new FlowLayout());

        b=new JButton("Button");
        // This does the thing!!
    public static void main(String args[])
        new DoubleTitleBar();

getRootPane().setWindowDecorationStyle(): This method takes an int which can be a FRAME, PLAIN_DIALOG etc and sets the window decoration style, i.e. styles the title bar. Also see using setDefaultLookAndFeelDecorated()

The greatest compliment you can give me is when you share this, I would sincerely appreciate it. :)
