    Default Screen overlay a possibility?

    I was wondering if Java has the capability of writing onto a computer's graphics display without opening a window or applet. I.e. - If I wanted to display text on top of my browser while still being able to use the browser. If not java, does any other language have this capability?

    Thanks in advance,

    I think Java 1.7 can do some of that. I don't remember how though.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
