You will probably need to use native code for that. Write a C++ function to do that and call it from Java using JNI:

mayankeagle is correct, you'll need to create a C++ function and call it using JNI.

To write to the event log (and be able to view it in the event viewer), you'll need to use the System::Diagnostics::EventLog class.

i.e.

System::Diagnostics::EventLog* log = new System::Diagnostics::EventLog();
log->Source= S"MyAppName";
log->WriteEntry(S"My Log Message",System::Diagnostics::EventLogEntryType::Information); // Can be Information,Warning or Error

Hope this helps...

Thanks. As one of the authors of NTEventLogAppender I always feel the most satisfaction when others appreciate my work. I CEHJ hadn't beat me (welcome back BTW) that was going to be my response also.
