JConfig : Java Glossary

I have left this tombstone entry for historical interest.

There are a number of programs called JConfig. The one I am talking about was a cross-platform library to do tasks you normally must resort to custom JNI (Java Native Interface) for. Chris Kelly of Samizdat wrote JConfig to solve many of the problems which prevent Java from being used to create real-world, competitive software. His domain tolstoy.com has disappeared. JConfig can list the user’s drives, obtain extended information on files, directories, volumes and filesystems, their icons, creation dates, version information and mount points, launch browsers, get screen information, etc. You can manipulate the Windows hidden attribute. It does not let you fiddle the Windows registry directly, but it does allow some platform independent probings at a higher level of abstraction.
