I am sure that those classes are very good, however, I would remember that JConfig is written in JAVA therefore, you should still be able to do anything that JConfig does without JConfig. On the other hand, maybe that would be pointless if someone else has done the job for you. But the way Jconfig advertises their product is that it access some low level system information that can't be reached with the core JAVA API classes. Fooy, how did they do it then. Plus, there is no such thing as low level java. Unless you are using JNI and some other language mixed with JAVA, JAVA still sits at a super high level on top of the OS. Don't be fooled. Be smart.
