It also provides a clipboard mechanism, which is an object that temporarily holds a transferable object that can be transferred between or within an application. The clipboard is typically used for copy and paste operations. Although it is possible to create a clipboard to use within an application, most applications will use the system clipboard to ensure the data can be transferred across applications running on the platform.
ClassDescriptionA class that implements a mechanism to transfer data using cut/copy/paste operations.Defines the interface for classes that will provide data to a clipboard.A
DataFlavorprovides meta information about data.Defines an object which listens for
FlavorEvents.A two-way Map between "natives" (Strings), which correspond to platform-specific data formats, and "flavors" (DataFlavors), which correspond to platform-independent MIME types.A FlavorMap which relaxes the traditional 1-to-1 restriction of a Map.A class to encapsulate MimeType parsing related exceptions.A
Transferablewhich implements the capability required to transfer a
String.The SystemFlavorMap is a configurable map between "natives" (Strings), which correspond to platform-specific data formats, and "flavors" (DataFlavors), which correspond to platform-independent MIME types.Defines the interface for classes that can be used to provide data for a transfer operation.Signals that the requested data is not supported in this flavor.
