Java with WebCam, possible?


I am wondering if the following is possible.

Java codes on windows, control WebCam (any webcam, most likely Logitech's) take the WebCam's current state and record it as a picture.

Save the picture to a file on local drive.

I have a feeling It might involve Jini, and would call some Com objects. Is that possible? Are there some tutorials or atleast some articles on how to do that?

what if I have it on a Linux system?

I am taking Java coz its easier for me. I know Java already, don't want to learn VB.net or C#... unless it is really necessary. And I want to keep it as portable as possible.
