Module java.desktop

Package java.awt.im

Provides classes and interfaces for the input method framework. This package enables text editing components to receive text input through input methods. Input methods are software components that let the user enter text in ways other than simple typing on a keyboard. They are commonly used to enter Japanese, Chinese, or Korean - languages using thousands of different characters - on keyboards with far fewer keys. However, the framework also supports input methods for other languages and the use of entirely different input mechanisms, such as handwriting or speech recognition.
