Director is geared for graphical user interfaces, the latest director
includes ccessability interface support which should be one avenue for
handling keyboard commands.
For a simple case I would blace an editable text sprite on stage but out
of sight with an on keydown handler behavior attached the text sprite
handling all the keystrokes.

I'm not sure what you want by "simple". Note that there are only a few user
inputs available from a mouse. How many inputs are possible from the keyboard
- including holding down modifier keys, multiple keys, etc.? I don't get the
reference to Java, though. I suspect the code would be similar in all
If you think your code is excessively large or cumbersome, post it here,
describe how it's implemented (behavior, parent, movie script, how it's
called, etc.) and one of us may be able to streamline it some.
