Are you using some tool that provides something called a "Desktop Management Interface"? Like maybe "Seagate Desktop Management Suite"?
Or are you talking about the DesktopManager Interface in the API? This interface HAS NO contents - so I obviously am not understanding what it is that you are trying to find out.
What contents are you looking for? It's Bounds?

Hi,
sorry, I should say more about my problem. The Desktop Management Interface is a industrie standart. It is a part of the BIOS and you can find there a list of installed hardware(processor, RAM, etc.). You can collect these information in a database(if you know a way to get the contents with java).
Finally you have all information of the PCs in your buisness.
I want to write a java client, which sends the DMI informations to a server with the database. Thats not easy I think, because Java and hardware...
Thanks for your attention ...
