Defines the interface for classes that will provide data to a clipboard.
Defines an object which listens for
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.
Defines the interface for classes that can be used to provide data for a transfer operation.
A class that implements a mechanism to transfer data using cut/copy/paste operations.
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.
A class to encapsulate MimeType parsing related exceptions
Signals that the requested data is not supported in this flavor.
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.
