Is it possible to create indicator applets for Java applications?

Asked by zerwas

Java applications like Wuala, JDownloader and others currently lack support of an indicator applet and instead use the old tray icon. Is it possible for developers to switch to an indicator applet without much work? Before i contact developers and create a feature request, i would like to ask here if it is possible at all and if so, if any Java application has been ported to indicator-applets already.

Best regards

You can suggest it on

I don't see why they can't be made to use notify-send, should be possible

Can you help with this problem?
