Could you may be consider using a different name?  I wrote a
java server project for *java applications* that has been
using that name for over a year.  See my signature for an
online demo.

I was contacted by another developer looking to use the robot
class for this purpose:

> Hi Brian, 
> I got your message and I'll take a look at the link you sent me this afternoon. 
> The plan is to be able to share a desktop on the fly, without installing a vncserver, similar to what help desks do with their clients. I think this might be possible by using the capturescreen method in the Robot class that comes with jdk1.3 and then combining that with jVNC. 
> If this works then the  next steps would be to tackle the performance/speed issues ( I read your email about the tree approach).
