Could you please tell me how to convert a DLL file into Java class files?
Is there any tools available for that? If so, how can i get it?
Thank you VeryMuch.

Hi Joseph,
What exactly are you trying to do? There are ways for Java to access native libraries thru JNI, but as far as I know, there is no way to create a DLL with Java. If you have the source code to the DLL and it's written in C, there is a free C2Java converter, although I seriously doubt that it would accurately convert C library code into Java.
