I would like to ask what could be the possible approaches to call from java a vb dll that incorporates an active x component which links to another(third party) application. The reason I am doing this is because I haven't got the API of that application in Java so I have to go round it using the VB activex.
So eventually the vb dll will incorporate the third party active x and the calls to that active x together with functions and properties for the java application which will return data to java for processing.
If anyone know how to do this or something similar with a VB dll and java I will appreciate it if he/she contacts me.
VB dll is on windows machine and the java program would be on Unix.
