Respected Group Members,
Is it possible to do hardware interfacing through java,I mean to say that lets suppose I have 3 LED(Light Emitting Diodes) and I want to control them through parallel ports than does java provides some methods or are there any specific API's avaliable for interfacing through parallel ports,serial ports and other hardware devices.In C language we have outportb() function for interfacing to parallel ports are any such of these available in Java.
