Method to implement Windows Explorer icon overlays with Java
I am writing a cloud-sync application in Java with .jni integration to virtualize a cloud file-system in windows explorer.
Now i want to implement icon overlays like owncloud to see the state of a node like this:
I found some solutions for C#. Is this also possible with Java if using a jni interface to get access to the Icon Handlers.
Anyone knows a existing solution?
P.S. Tha last question for this is 4 years old so there is eventually a new solution for modern systems with java8 in combination with a native .dll available.
Thank you for any hint.
I just found a solution for Java 1.7+ in combination with native and jni dlls. Works with Windows Vista+, Mac and Linux.
"Liferay Nativity is a cross-platform library for adding icon overlays and context menus to file browsers."
You can find the GIT project here:
Anyone sucessfully integrated this? Trying to do a test implementation now.
