Is this a server-based application or a standalone installed program, which is to access the address book.

Further, you realize that Java is platform-independent and MS Outlook is dependent. There might be a Windows Control or something somewhere, but it is again doubtful whether it has been adapted for invocation from Java.

Try to get your enduser to export the contents of his address book as a CSV file and then you import them to your program.
