I just played around with VS.NET and embedded media into a Windows application using ActiveX components. Now, I know the same can be done using SWT but is there any other feasible alternatives for a Java-to-COM bridge than what SWT provides? If I want to keep my application as small as possible, which way should I go?

About the only thing I know is the JDIC Project however, it doesn't give you a full API of ActiveX components to throw into a Swing app. I don't know of any packages that do all that for you already.

In any case you are going to have shared native libs to throw on a users system. SWT seems like the logical approach to me. I can't imagine anything being smaller than that.

Thanks, Gregg.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
