Hi,
I need to access some data through a COM interface. Just wondering, is there any standard way for me to do that in Java?
And can I create a com object with java, NOT J++?
Thanks a lot
Chris

IBM has a freebie called bridge2java. If your go to http://alphaworks.ibm.com you can search for it and download it there.

Thanks. I saw it claims the win98,95 is the working platform for bridge2java. Have you tried it at win2000 and NT?
Thanks

I would be tempted to try Webservices - SOAP or XML-RPC

Hi friends,

I have used bridge2java to use component developed in delphi. I have got many classes files. I dont understand how I can used.

I have read following link
http://www-128.ibm.com/developerworks/java/library/j-bridge/

But I am not able to get detail idea. Do you have any idea or any other help file to access/invoke these applications.

Moreover, they have given one example. I want to try for that example and can learn for my application. But there is one package missing named "Lot123", which is imported in various files to try sample examples given by IBM(bridge2java)...

Has anyone tried to execute these example? Any help will be very helpful.

thanks,
kapil patel
