    Default retrieving hardware information

    hi, i'm designing an applet to retrieve user's hardware information such as CPU, hard disk, RAM and graphic card

    I have found something for CPU, HDD.

    However, i couldn't find one for graphic card and ram

    anyone can guide me to that?

    I've used Sigar to get some of this information, but I'm not sure if it can get info on the Graphics card.

    You're not necessarily stuck. You can always find a C library that does what you want and then link to it via JNA or JNI, or even simpler, find a small app that does this, and get the info from the app via I/O streams.

    I would try to do things in an easier way. For instance I'd try to use a utility program and try to get the info via a socket or a file. I think that AutoIt can get some of this information: can-autoit-get-hardware-infomation

    hmm, the problem is, how do i integrate this with the JNI so that it would run seamlessly for the users?
