Are there any free windows JNI libraries (I'm not exactly sure if that's what you would call them)? Something like the WinPak that comes with JNIWrapper from teamdev.com. I want to be able to get "hotkey" input when my swing application does not have focus.

I tried to write my own native method, but my C/C++ could barley be considered to be at a beginner level.

Thanks!

I put "java windows hotkey input" into google and it came up with JIntellitype. Looks like it's worth checking out.

Thanks for pointing me to that library! It's free, easy to use, and does exactly what I want it to. Wow.

With everything else there is to say about Google, I think we that are used to it can forget just how extraordinary it is at the searching algorithms that made it famous.

I work in an old Microsoft language called Visual Basic -- when I need to find out something about its syntax, or libraries, etc., using Google is easily faster at getting me specific information that I need than using the help facility that Microsoft provided for the purpose.

Having worked with it myself (and sometimes still work with it), I can't help but feel sorry for you
