Hi folks,
maybe that question is kind of stupid, but I aks myself how
to code a screensaver in Java and how to do it.
There a several tutorials how to do it in C++, so maybe it's
possible to write a screensaver in C++, whos task is to wait
until it's started by Windows and then start a Java 2D- (or whatever)
applikation in fullscreen mode, using JNI ?
Or is there an rub in it ?
Would be happy to hear from you.
Best regards!

O.K. - I found a tool that Tosiki IGA offers on his
Sourceforge project page (http://sourceforge.net/projects/jssaver/).
JScreenSaver is a tool which starts a Java application as screensaver
on Windows machines.
You have to handle all mouse and keyboard events by yourself but
Thank God you don't have to worry about calling your screensaver
application from Windows.
To me it's a great tool and it will help me coding my own
screensaver in Java.
Great thanx to Tosiki
