Hai friend,
I am planning for Screen capture oriented software. Can any body tell me how to go about capturing screens in a Windows or other platform. If the system it is not supported then can i know why ?

You can write screen capture utilities in other languages like VB. But,using pure Java, that is, without using JNI, it is not possible to write such an utility. If you want to have a screen capturing utility withing a Java application, and if it is to be used in a particular platform only, then you can go in for JNI(Java Native Interace).
