Java screensaver?

Is there an easy way to write a screensaver in Java?

This depends on what platform you are using.
When using the M$ platform, the screensaver programs are just normal exe's that have a special filename extension (SCR) and have some conventions for parameters to either start up the configuration dialog window or the screen saver full-screen.
The problem will also be to get to the complete screen to paint your stuff on. Also the M$ java stuff gives you access to the win32 API. You could also probably use JNI for this, but you then have to write some normal windows code in VB, C, C++, Delphi, etc...

The answer to your question is simply "NO".
Screensavers are very platform specific, so even if there is a wya to do it,
there is certainly no EASY way.
