Java/COM/ActiveX development

I am just starting a project that will require me to access COM objects as well as make available some of my Java Objects through COM.
I have started looking at jacoZoom for a 3rd party software to bridge the gap and was wondering if anyone has had any problems or if any one has had good results?
Also they show that accessing COM through Java is fine, buy haven't been able to find if the either way is possible.
Also if someone knows of a better way (besides using JINI directly) let me know.

Use Microsofts .NET. It will integrate all of those components into a seamless architecture.

I might as well just use VJ++ then? I am trying to stay away from Microsoft specific solutions as much as possible.
I am looking into J-Integra which will looks like it takes care of going com2java and java2com.
I agree. Here's the link:
