The use of Beans with COM


Thread Starter

Has anyone ever used Java for accessing and/or invoking methods from Intellution or RSVIEW32 ActiveX/COM components? Is it possible? On the same note, has anyone ever tried to create a DCOM based application with Java?

A company called Linar ( provides a product (J-Integra) that allows you to access COM objects from Java and viceversa. I have not tried it but I have heared that it works fine. IBM also has a JAVA/COM bridge available as an alphaworks technology ( The only other option is to use the infamous (and now unsupported, I believe) Microsoft VM for Java. Regards, Vegeta
