How to access Clipbaord Data using JAVA API


        Is there any API available to set/get client's Clipboard Data through Java in Atlassian framework?

        I want to provide two custom buttons for copy & paste and on click of them the respective operation should perform but I am not able to trigger copy/paste event from JavaScript. because of security reasons javascript does not allow to access clipboard data hence now I am searching for any API available at server side to access clipboard data.

     can somebody help me?

Yes, but No.  The java runs on the server side, and the clipboard is on the client.

Yes because there is a way to do it - you use the browser to send to, or get that data from, the clipboard, and that means you have to use something that runs in the browser and can talk to the server.  To do this, you use javascript embedded in the page to tell the browser what to do with the clipboard. 

So No, because you've blocked the API that does it.
