[Fwd: What about Tray/DockIcon support?]
there is considerable interest for application icon support in JDIC
(forum copied). Do you want to put up your prototype as a contributor
project as a starting point for the design?

What I'd really like to have is an abstraction of the various
"application icon" systems like the TrayIcon on Windows and the DockIcon
on Mac OS X.
I suggest this because they have a lot in common on all operating
systems (notification, (dynamic) icon, popup-menu).
This project seems to be the right place for such an API since it would
deepen the desktop integration of JavaApps.
There are projects like
http://www.amug.org/~glguerin/sw/ (Notifications for Java)
that provide some of the functionalities I'm looking for but I think the
use of various different API's that implement nearly the same features
for different operating systems hinders wide-spread use in general.
