Hi,

I want the cursor to always use the wait cursor no matter where on the screen the cursor is. Is this possible?

Setting a cursor in java:

Window w = new Window();

w.setCursor( Cursor.getPredefinedCursor(Cursor.WAIT_CURSOR));

You can ofcourse do this on a JFrame also, since a JFrame is a subclass of Window.

Does your application window occupy the whole screen?

if not, you'll need to use JNI
