Apparently, JNI is the only way out. Luckily, there are few third party libraries are available for this. Try searching for it on Google.
HTH,

Here is one implementation which allows you to perform actions on a click-event (ie. showing the gui). It is called DesktopIndicator. Make sure you read the instructions on how to use it, as you must install the classes on your classpath, however there is an example to show you how.
Hope this helps
Dave
