Java: Screen Capturing Tutorial

Ever wondered how you are able to capture your computer screen from tools like Snipping Tool, Jing or maybe just a print screen button. Now you can not only know it but built one. Making a full-feature screen capture utility for end consumer maybe difficult and not effective altogether as it's more of native thing rather than cross-platform. Here's a guide to take screenshots of your screen or portions of it.

I have designed a simple GUI form using Netbeans GUI Builder that would make the working easy & clear.

Don't concentrate on the UI for now, just know that we will do all our functions on button click of capture button. (i.e actionPerformed event).
