Hi,

I am looking for example code in java to capture OS related events like Logout/Login/Shutdown/Restart/Monitor-Lock ..etc.


Regards,

Sanuji Pillai.

Yeah... you need native code for that. Google for a JNI or preferably a JNA solution to this problem.


The mind is a strange and wonderful thing. I'm not sure that it will ever be able to figure itself out, everything else, maybe. From the atom to the universe, everything, except itself.

May I ask why? It goes against the entire ethos of Java, which is to be platform-independent.

Isn't it funny how there's always time and money enough to do it WRONG?
