Description
A DESCRIPTION OF THE REQUEST :
Hey,

Please allow to drop data flavors from the OS onto the java.awt.TrayIcon that resides in the java.awt.SystemTray.

JUSTIFICATION :
This feature exists in other programming languages and it is very useful for certain applications.
For example, I developed a translator app that is present in the system tray and I would like my users to be able to drop text / files and get the translation in a TrayIcon notification message.

EVALUATION

Currently, we do not plan to implement such functionality.
