how to capture keyboard events

  Asked By: Karina    Date: Sep 28    Category: Java    Views: 1260

I am trying to develop my event class.It must capture events in the
lowest level
Whenever I open an outside java application using Runtime.()
I must be able to know what are the keyboard events which occur
{whether its a,b,c....}
and the mouse events {basically the positions of clicking } and
record it in my application

As far as I know, there is no way to do this outside of using JNI in
some fashion to interact with the operating system directly. Java can
only handle mouse  and keyboard  events inside a Java UI component (such
as an AWT window).
