[JAVA2D] TabletPC Feature Api

2 replies [Last post]

Hello together,

After some research into the topic of TabletPCs and Java I realised
that there seems to be a big hole in the APIs. Would anybody be
interested in an API encompassing the typical TabletPC features such as
drawing, text recognition, etc.? I plan to construct one but could use
some help...

Cheers,
Arik

I would certainly be interested in one. I have a Wacom tablet and would
certainly like to have Java be able to read it's pressure sensitive
feature. The only code I've found available for it relies on a native
routines for windows.

My question would be - how could we be certain that what we develop
would be incorporated into Java? Also, tablet input is less defined
than keyboard input, and I'd think that maintaining native code for all
possible tablet input devices would be prohibitive.

Please read about the Java Community Process on jcp.org. This kind of
effort is exactly what that process was designed for...
