% JTattooDemo - demonstrates effects of Look-and-Feel changes (including JTattoo L&F)
%
% JTattooDemo displays a figure with Matlab uicontrols and Java components, 
% and allows the user to modify the figure's look-and-feel (L&F) to any of
% the standard L&Fs installed on the system, as well to the JTattoo L&Fs.
%
% Syntax:
%    hFig = JTattooDemo()
%
% Input Parameters:
%    None.
%
% Output parameters:
%    hFig - handle of the created figure
