Copying Images to the System Clipboard (Java 1.1.x)

With a signed applet running on IE or Netscape, I wish to copy a java.awt.Image object onto the clipboard in the form of a BMP(or GIF/JPEG), such that I may paste the copied image in another Windows Application such as MSPaint or Word.


JDK1.1.x supports the copying of "Strings" onto the System clipboard. Using a MIME type as "image/bmp", can I copy the image onto the clipboard such that other applications like Word understand and paste it?


Regards,

Rohit
