Hello I have a question about DnD handling in java.
I know it's possible to handle Drag and Drop within one java application, however is it possible to handle items that are being dragged from outside a java application? For instance is it possible to handle a MS-Windows file being dropped in a java application?
To put it into context.
I want to drag a .exe file onto my Swing application, then a new button should be created on that component where the item was dropped. This button should have the same functionality as .... a .lnk file in windows explorer for instance.
Is there anyone who can give me some assistance?

I presume you are aware of the section in the Java Tutorials about drag'n'drop?
