The most common problem with COMM is getting the file in the right place. This is the file that tells the API which driver to use. As I recall, JAVA-HOME/jre/lib is where you want to put it.

I Got it....i thought it will help others to i am posting this...even if u have done as per the instructions....u will have a java.exe in system 32 folder....certainly u have not installed ur API with this it will give an exception...
U hav two way's to resolve this..
1) u need to remove run ur application like jdk\jre\bin java BlackBox(Your application)
2) U need to set the path variable like(jdk\bin) first before any (system32) is set...

Thanks and Regards
