There used to be a tool - javareg.exe - provided by Microsoft, which allowed you to register you Java code such that it could be called from VB, etc, via COM.
My question is - where is it now? I've searched through an installation of Windows 2000 Advanced Server & Visual Studio.Net 2003, all over the web and Microsoft's website. However, there seems to be no sign of it anywhere! If anyone has a copy of javareg.exe or knows a place where I may download it from, please let me know. My other option would be to convert my Java code to C# using the "Java Language Conversion Assistant" ... which I really don't want to do. Please help me save my Java !
Thanks,
Sachin

I emailed you the file.
Let me know if you didn't get it.

No. It only works with Microsoft's JVM, which has been obsolete for many years now. Some modern-day options can be found at http://www.coderanch.com/how-to/java/Java-FAQ#callingCom

Thanks for the link; however, it looks like the FAQ there only answers the reverse problem (calling COM/DLL/ActiveX from within JAVA); I need the other way around... Any ideas?

Thanks!

Last year I worked at a company where we had to make .NET code call Java code and vice versa. We used JuggerNET to do this. Beware however that there were some gotcha's to have it working correctly. It generates proxy classes with a tool and it doesn't always automatically exactly do what you want.

JNI can not only be used to call non-Java code from Java, it can also be used to call Java code from non-Java code. It involves launching an internal JVM, loading the class and use its results.
