What Is JAB (Java Access Bridge)? - JAB is a technology that exposes the Java Accessibility API in a Microsoft Windows DLL, enabling Java applications and applets that implement the Java Accessibility API to be visible to assistive technologies on Microsoft Windows systems. Java Accessibility API is part of Java Accessibility Utilities, which is a set of utility classes that help assistive technologies provide access to GUI toolkits that implement the Java Accessibility API.

JAB is included in the JDK for Windows package. It comes with 3 tools.

"jabswitch": A Windows command to enable or disable the Java Access Bridge.

"jaccessinspector": A Windows GUI tool to examine accessible information of objects that trigger events in a Java GUI application.

"jaccesswalker": A Windows GUI tool to navigate through the component trees of a Java GUI application.
