      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
      When a JCheckBox is placed on a JToolBar under the Swing look and feel and a few of the derived look and feels, it is painted with no background. This looks odd on the toolbar as it tries to make it behave like a button which it is not.

      STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
      1. Create a new application and set the default Swing look and feel
      2. Create a JToolbar
      3. Add a JCheckBox to the JToolBar
      4. Run the program and notice the lack of gradient.

      EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
      EXPECTED -
      I would expected the toolbar to continue painting its gradient background behind the JCheckBox.
      ACTUAL -
      The JToolBar does not paint the gradient behind the JCheckBox.

      REPRODUCIBILITY :
      This bug can be reproduced always.

      CUSTOMER SUBMITTED WORKAROUND :
      It can be corrected by making the checkbox non-opaque, but this should be the default behavior in the SE.
      checkbox.setOpaque(false);

      An alternative is to set the border to be painted which also makes it less out of place, but the border is still a different color than that for toolbar buttons in the Swing look and feel unless manually overridden.
      checkbox.setBorderPainted(true);

      SUPPORT :
      YES
