  • Java isn't the best language choice for your project. The user-mode APIs available for this purpose are designed for use by C/C++ programmers. The kernel-mode APIs are almost strictly 'C'.

    Start here:


    Then download the Windows Platform SDK. This includes two sample user-mode applications in this folder:

    C:\Program Files\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v7.0\Samples\netds\wfp

    You should probably limit your project to functionality exposed by the WFP user-mode facility only.

    Good luck!
