Package java.awt.im Description

Provides classes and an interface for the input method framework. This framework enables all text editing components to receive Japanese, Chinese, or Korean text input through input methods. An input method lets users enter thousands of different characters using keyboards with far fewer keys. Typically a sequence of several characters needs to be typed and then converted to create one or more characters. Text editing components can use this package and related classes in java.awt.event to support the on-the-spot input style.
