Every time I see I/O come up in Java-land it is either disk files, network, or console. Does Java have facilities for accessing other devices with drivers installed? I mean, if I wanted to plug in a PCI based A/D - D/A card what kind of support does Java have for letting me write apps to control it?

It's possible to access other kinds of devices using Java, e.g. the Java IO FAQ links to resources about USB and serial I/O.

It's likely that a specialty device like a A/D-D/A converter has a special interface; check its documentation to see how it's supposed to be accessed.
