      Description



      Name: krT82822 Date: 02/05/2000


      java version "1.2"
      Classic VM (build JDK-1.2-V, native threads)

      Some Desktops (KDE, MS Windows) have panels/toolbars providing fast access to programs. Some
      programs can dock into these panels, to add functionality to the user's basic configuration. An example is the ICQ-Client.

      Java should allow the possibility of adding an icon to such a panel, and providing access to the
      functionality the icon provides/represents.

      If the platform does not have such a panel/toolbar, the API methods should throw an
      exception.

      If the Java API contains such a functionality, it would be possible to write
      applications in Java, that can dock to the panel :-)
