  Description     : portable joystick and gamepad library for java

 The JInput Project hosts an implementation of an API for game controller
 discovery and polled input. It is part of a suite of open-source
 technologies initiated by the Game Technology Group at Sun Microsystems
 with intention of making the development of high performance games in
 Java a reality.
 The API itself is pure Java and presents a platform-neutral completely
 portable model of controller discovery and polling. It can handle
 arbitrary controllers and returns both human and machine understandable
 descriptions of the inputs available.
 The implementation hosted here also includes plug-ins to allow the API
 to adapt to various specific platforms. These plug-ins often contain a
 native code portion to interface to the host system.
