I am using my mouse to interact with a Java applet in a browser. Clearly the party that owns the Java applet can record where I click inside the applet. What I'm wondering about now is whether it is possible for that party to also record the movements of my cursor (i.e. the paths I take when I move my cursor around) within the Java Applet. Is this possible?

I know that it is possible to track user mouse movements within the browser window using JavaScript.
