I remember that there are some code examples with the distribution they were enough to get started.

About two years ago I created a Java app that polled info from a scale attached to the serial port on a pc.

This location helped alot and was just about all the information I could find on the API.

For that app, I found I had to send a code to the scale before I could get the current reading from the scale. So you may want to look at the read and write examples.

I'd be willing to share that code for the app, but it is very much based on those examples. (and how it was my first Java app, I'm sure that the code is a total mess. Ugly that is. )
