Is it possible to make a java program into a windows COM Server so that another program can get the java program's COM Object to make method calls with? If it is possible could you please describe the process or refer me to a link with related information?

Basically I am trying to make a java program which complements another program I am using. That other program can make COM objects and right now the only thing that I can think of is creating the shell COM object and running the java program with passed in variables each time I want to use the java program to do some calculations, which is not very efficient since java program takes some time to start up.

There's nothing from Sun - in the libraries - to do that. Google for "java com bridge" and find lots of products that ought to get close to what you need.
