Hello,
Can some body tell me good reference material/website to interact with registry. The objective is to write some data into it while installing a program which can be extracted afterward.
Any help??
regards,
Arun

You may want to have a look at the J2SE 1.4's Preferences API.
If you want some code, you can look at the java.util.prefs.WindowsPreferences class.
Another resource: Sir, What is Your Preference?

You can get a free Java JNI package to manipulate the MS Windows Registry from http://www.trustice.com/java/jnireg/
You can access the windows registry through the Java 1.4 preferences API.
