Is there any way to use information kept in Clipboard in Java applet?
What I need is to use a screen-shot image inside Java applet for Whiteboard purposes.

Pure Java, don't thinks so. With MSIE and MSJ++ may be.
You can do it with native code, but implementing a shared .dll that does the grabbing from the clipboard. Anyway, you need to sign your applet in order to be able to download your dll and load it.
