Ok, for the record,

in JDK 1.3 there is the Robot class that saves you time in faking mosue movements and key strokes. What it essentially does (and we had to do by our selves for the lesser JDK versions) is packaging of appropriate AWT event and pushing them into the system queue.

Possible use:

Marcro recording. Keystroke recording and replaying.
User activity history for statistical stuff. Positioning mouse pointer on suggestive choices when more than one available, etc.

Cheers,
