screen capture from client machine
We have a client-server application. Iam trying to take a screenshot from the web-client (using Robot class) for which iam using signed jars. Everything works fine for me.
But this requires java-plugin to be installed in the client browsers. This is a usability issue for me. I dont want to ask my customers to install the plugin.
IS THERE ANY OTHER WAY TO TAKE SCREENSHOTS OF CLIENT MACHINE?
We are stuck in solving this issue since two weeks, and still haven't got any clue about a possible solution.
Any feasible suggestion would be of great help.

I'm confused about your problem.
What kind of code do you have running on the client's machine, if any?
If they don't have the Java plugin installed, then it must not be a java program.
But this forum is about java applets. How can they run an applet without the plugin?
Could you explain?

Dear Norm:

My requirement is to provide an option in my web-client to take screenshots of the client machine. Applets satisfy my requirement, but we feel using applets may cause some security/usability issues for our end-users.
I wanted to know whether my requirement can be satisfied by some other mechanism.

regards,
prasanna

Oh, I thought it was a question about java.
