Code Sketch: System Tray in Java

As I mentioned a week or so ago, this year I am going to release whatever I am working on, on a regular basis. The idea is that even if I fail or release something that is half finished, I can learn more by turning it out to the wild than if I never share it with anyone.

These bits of code are not big enough to be called apps, and don’t have enough explanatory text to call them demos or tutorials (although I want to do that as well). I’ll call them…. code sketches!

The first one I worked on over the New Year break. It’s code for a simple system tray, done in Java. The code is available from scn, and the license is GPL.

Java allows access to native System Tray notifications.
