Hi everyone. I was just curious if anyone knew if JSR 80 is still being supported and will still work for communicating with USB devices. I have skimmed through the API documentation, but its pretty thin on actual code examples so I am having a difficult time trying to implement it.
Thanks!

What do you mean by "supported"? On http://javax-usb.org/ you can find the RI; does that not work? The site has code examples as well.

JUSB didn't work for me; at least on the version of Ubuntu Im using. My hope was someone who has recently used JSR80 could confirm that everything is hunky dory with the API.
I must have missed the example area, I'll take a look.

Well, for posterity, it appears that both APIs are dependent on usbfs; which Ubuntu 10+ doesn't seem to use natively. The post I read indicated that there might be hacky workarounds or suggesting recompiling the kernel. Neither of which sound particularly appealing. Back to my old buddy Rs232 I suppose.
