Java for Kiosk desktop (Touch screen apps)

Java for Kiosk desktop (Touch screen apps)

Java for Kiosk desktop (Touch screen apps)

Hi, I have to build an application that will be deployed onto Kiosk or Pleham slone computers (which are same as the Kiosks we find in Airports)
I am thinking of writing a Java frame and making it appear in full screen. I am very new to Kiosk type of programming, so wondering how that works and where Java fits in.
My manager is talking about putting a command to start the Java app in the windows startup file so that it will be the only one seen by end-users. They are basically not allowed to access any other function in that machine. So is AWT frames a way to go. i know this is not new, so how does people usually approach this kind of problem.
Any help is greately appreciated.

You should ask this in the Java forum: this one is intended for J2EE questions, that use to have HTML presentation.
