Show the webcam video on fullscreen and capture screen when clicked.

Hello experts,

Excuse my bad english, I need to make this java program:


The user will have a PC, his webcam and this program. The program must show on fullscreen his webcam video (his face), then when he push any button, the program must capture the screen and save into a file... so the user will have so many photos as clicks. When the users close the program, he could see all photos taken.

Its important that the user see on fullscreen the webcam input until he push any key or button.

Please, tell me what I need to use, webcam requirements, documentation, examples...(you know, 125 points !!!)

Thank you in advance.

I've done a project on handwritten character recognition and did it all in java. In my project I took snaps of handwritten digits, processed the images and passed them to a neural network which mapped images of digits to the desired output.

For my project I used these...You can try too!!!...
 
-> Camera(Vivitar55) to Java interface : Morena 6.1. You will find it at www.gnome.sk
-> Download Morena 6.1 and add it to your program.

Here is an example code to take snaps and display them-

/*****************************************************/

import java.awt.*;
import java.awt.event.*;
import SK.gnome.twain.*;

public class ExampleShow extends Frame
{ Image image;
  public void paint(Graphics g)  
  { if (null!=image)
      g.drawImage(image, 0, 0, this);
  }
 
  WindowListener windowAdapter=new WindowAdapter()
  { public void windowClosing(WindowEvent e)
    { System.exit(0);
    }
  };
 
  public ExampleShow()
  { try
    { addWindowListener(windowAdapter);
      setTitle("ExampleShow Frame Application");
      // Open TWAIN select source dialog box
      // and initialize the source selected by the user.
      TwainSource source=TwainManager.selectSource(null);
      image=Toolkit.getDefaultToolkit().createImage(source);
      // wait for the image to be completed
      MediaTracker tracker=new MediaTracker(this);
      tracker.addImage(image, 0);
      // this is the moment the scanner user interface pops up
      System.err.println("Start loading image ...");
      try
      { tracker.waitForAll();
      }
      catch (InterruptedException e)
      { System.err.println("Image loading was interrupted!");
        e.printStackTrace();
      }
      tracker.removeImage(image);
      System.err.println("Image loaded ...");
      setSize(image.getWidth(this), image.getHeight(this));
      setVisible(true);
      TwainManager.close();
    }
    catch (TwainException e)
    { e.printStackTrace();
    }
  }
 
  public static void main(String[] args)
  { new ExampleShow();
  }
}
