Hello,

I am currently planning to implement a framework or an application to monitor Swing applications.
What I want that application to do, is basically log display information (size, position, visibility etc) about all JComponent classes, like JPanel, JButton etc.
I need this information to provide area's of interest for eye tracker based evaluations.
It would be really nice to do this in a way so that I don't have to modify the applications which are to be evaluated.
So, is there some (easy) way to access this data on running Java applications?

Cheers
Dennis

You can try to use JMX for that.

Thanks, I'll have a look at that!

I'm currently reading about the JDI API which might work for this too.
