calling ocx methods in C

Hi All,
I have a third party ocx that I'll be using in my java application. For that, I need to write a wrapper dll that I can load into my application through JNI. This dll will be interacting with the ocx and will help me call the methods in ocx and mapping the data types in Java to the ones in C.
My question is how can I generate a header file from the ocx file so that I can include that in the wrapper dll and call the methods defined in the ocx. This way I'll be implicitly loading the ocx into the wraper dll. Or is there any other way to load the ocx into my wrapper dll?
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
