I'm sorry for being so imprecise. The program that I'm talking about is a Java application
with a (swing / awt )GUI . I uploaded a screen shot: http://img10.imageshack.us/img10/5293/screenshotyq1.jpg
sadly I have very little experience with
swing/awt I use Qt-jambi for GUI development.

I'm trying to read continuously updated numbers from a java window. ( I
don't have the source code for the program)
I was already able to do this using a custom OCR algorithm but this is a
bit slow and too error-prone.
Second I tried to find the memory address where the most recent value was
stored and simply checked the
same memory address over and over again. This work as well to some extend ,
after a changing period of time the new
values where stored a different location and I was not able to get access to
the updated values anymore. I can only suspect was happened but I guess some
kind of memory allocation. ( I was using the Sun Java Runtime on Ubuntu 8.10
Since all my ideas failed so far, I'm curious if there is a chance to read
number ( or characters ) from a java window
if I use OpenJDK. Any hint suggesting where I can find information for this
task a very much appreciated.
best regards flyingimmi
