How do I get the number of buttons on the mouse?

MouseInfo provides methods for getting information about the mouse, such as mouse pointer location and the number of mouse buttons.

package org.kodejava.example.awt;

import java.awt.*;

public class MouseNumberOfButtons {
    public static void main(String[] args) {
        // Get the number of buttons on the mouse. On systems without a mouse, returns -1. 
        // HeadlessException if GraphicsEnvironment.isHeadless() returns true.
        int numberOfButtons = MouseInfo.getNumberOfButtons();
        System.out.println("Mouse Number Of Buttons = " + numberOfButtons);
