I would like to write a program that uses the parallel port to interface with the outside world using java. I have discovered the Java Comm API but being a newbie cant really figure out all ther is to it! Does anyone know some Comm basics, or where a tutorial is? Seems Sun begrudgingly supplied this API to start with and isn't about to be helpful in getting it used! Any help or resources would be greatly appreciated!

Be sure you can run the examples provided in the download before embarking on your own code. If the examples claim they can't find any ports it is because your java.comm.properties file is not in the right place.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
