7.15. Platform Integration

We finish this chapter with several features for making Java applications feel more like native applications. The splash screen feature allows your application to display a splash screen as the virtual machine starts up. The java.awt.Desktop class lets you launch native applications such as the default browser and e-mail program. Finally, you now have access to the system tray and can clutter it up with icons, just like so many native applications do.
