I have a DVM that spits out readings on a serial port. How do I "connect" that serial stream to something I can read using Java?

Hi, welcome to the ranch! See if the Communications API does what you need.

Be aware that the Java Comm API is no longer supported on Windows. The JavaRanch IO FAQ contains several alternatives.
