Hi all,
Not sure whether this is the correct forum to post this Question. Anyway, this is my question.

Just checking whether there are any open source java stuff which enables to do drag and drop of pictures/media files from the local file sytem directly in to a page in the web application... or for that matter to component in a standalone java swing application.

Not sure the facilities provided by Java DnD API.

Thanks in advance for any help

I think it's possible with Swing - for which the Swing forum would be the appropriate one.

For a webpage, you will probably have to use JavaScript - or some kind of applet, flash application or similar. Hopefully others will have more ideas about that.
