    Question: I'm curious as to why you've chosen to use Java as the tool for tackling this task? I would guess that a language that's closer to the hardware such as C or C++ would work better in this situation.

    Best of luck.

    You still may wish to create a module in C and then link this with your Java app using JNI.

    Actually some of the basis data you can find using a Java application, such as current time/date, memory info and such things using java.lang.runtime class and java.util class. But not all info on BIOS.

    I agreed with Fubarable. Better you workaround with JNI. Because using standard C++ it's easy to do.
