    Default How to receive a word by placing mouse on it in any word file or pdf or on-line newspaper.

    Hi friends! i have an interesting question for you and hope you will solve it for me using java, J2EE.
    How can i receive a word by placing mouse on it in any word file or pdf or on-line newspaper. suppose i am reading an on-line news paper and by just placing the mouse over a word i would like to receive that word for some processing and after processing it the result will be displayed inside a rectangular box with an arrow at its corner to point that word. Also note that the rectangular box should only appear till I've placed the mouse or cursor on it, as soon as i remove the cursor the rectangular box should also disappear. you can use any of the java related technology.

    This isn't a job for Java.

    If you really want to go down this road, you might want to look at the Robot class and various OCR libraries. But this isn't a job for Java.
