I was given a project today to develop an application for a touch screen moinitor. They also gave me a choice to develop this application in either java or vb. For testing purposes they told me to put in a request for a touch screen monitor. My questions are

1)what type of monitor would be could for testing touch screen software? Can't be handheld.

2)Are the events for a mouse click the same as the events for someone touching the screen?

3) Does anyone here at ao have experience in programming touch screens or actually has a touch screen that they can reccomend?

Also I have a feeling I am going to go with java on this project but if all goes to hell it will be done in vb. I've done some research on the touch screen monitors but if anyone else can send some links or good reference my way I would appreciate it.
