In the application (JSF) i want to develop i need to do a lot of MS-Office stuff. From my point of view it would be easy to do this in Visual Studio or C#. Is there a possibility for Java to talk to Vb and get an answer back (for ex. I'm ready or an exception)?
I've found something for Outlook. But i still need a solution for Word and Excel
Old versions of BSF (2.2 and 2.3rc1) used to include a VBScript connector. That would allow you to run scripts (and pass parameters back and forth). At a quick glance, those versions seem to be gone from the download area, and even from the archive, though. Maybe the BSF folks can still provide you with a version.
Or is it actually COM objects/DLLs you are trying to talk to? In that case, a library like Jacob can take the pain out of using JNI to do this. [ September 06, 2007: Message edited by: Ulf Dittmer ]
