Question: I need "Always On Top" functionality for my GUI... How could I do that?

Answer: One of the main points of Java is to be completely platform independent. However, sometimes it will occur that the developer of an application will know that his or her application is only going to be run on a specific platform, for example, Win32.

Below are the steps for writing a Java application that makes a Win32 API call. The application generates a Swing JFrame and makes it system modal, or gives it the "Always On Top" functionality, similar to that of the Windows NT Task Manager:

1. Write the Java code for the application
2. Run javah.exe on your .class file to generate a C header file
3. Write the implementation of your native methods
4. Create the shared library
5. Run the application
