I recentley implemented a java application which used JNI to create 'always on top' functionality on a windows platform. I now need to implement this on a Mac running OS X. Can anybody point me in the right direction, which might help me out or even have some suitable examples.

He said that he want to force his window to be 'always on top'. He used a native solution for windows - so it will NOT work for Mac, and he needs to know how the Mac OS accomplishes it (some dll or whatever), so he can write a JNI solution incorporating it.
I, of course, know NOTHING about Macs - so I am no help whatsoever .
