Does anyone know how to make a java application flash in the taskbar without taking the focus. I want to have a java app flash in the taskbar when a certain event happens. I found an existing windows dll that will do the trick. I found info on using JNI but haven't found anything on using an existing windows dll. Hopefully there is a way without using JNI.

If there is no Java binding for that DLL yet, then you'll have to use JNI.

Before you reinvent the wheel, check if existing solutions like these fit your requirements.

Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
