hi. I am a VB developer trying to make a switch into a programming language that will make my app run on multiple platforms. I read Java has that capability. However, can JAVA also access hardware scanner, and modem because my app needs to do that.
If there is can you point me to a code wherein I can study it.
thanks.

Concerning your modem use desires, depending on what exactly you're wanting to do, you might want to take a look at the Java Communications API and/or the Java Telephony API.
Moving this thread to the Other Java APIs forum...
