The Windows platform has the AppBar which behaves like the TaskBar. It reserves space on the desktop for itself, it can autohide, it coexists amicably with other AppBars. Has anyone seen a way to implement this feature? JNI is possible, but I cringe at sending windows messages to a JVM window.
Has anyone tried creating a native window in JNI code and having it handle the notification messages (pass the results to JVM)?
