Hi Everybody,

I guess my question is really "How to consume the COM components". I am confident that IDL will bail it out.

Perhaps, if you can suggest me how?

Not sure what you mean by "consuming", but there are quite a few libraries that allow Java to access COM components. Some of them are even Open Sourced. Just google "Java COM bridge", for a detailed list.
