j-Interop(http://j-interop.sourceforge.net) implements DCOM wire protocol (MSRPC) to enable development of Pure Bi-Directional, Non-Native, Java applications which can interoperate with any COM component.The implementation itself is purely in Java and does not use JNI to provide native access,thus being truly platform independent. It has full support for COM automation and supports callback from COM Servers (event handling).
1.01(a) has been tested on Windows XP/2K/2K3 and Fedora 5. Beta is expected out by first week of september.
