Hello Everybody,
I'd like to call windows COM/DCOM objects and would like to read some TLB files. As a matter of fact I'm interested in reading the Address book of Outlook express. I've been told that it is possible after reading some TLB files etc.
Can I read it from JAVA? Some one says it is possible through JNDI? Is it right?
Could you please spare a moment and show me the path and some reference sites etc to start with?
regards,
arun

You might want to try J-Integra from Intrinsyc (http://j-integra.intrinsyc.com/j-integra/info/). It lets you bridge from Java to COM/DCOM and vice-versa. I just got done using it for a project here at work, and it's relatively easy to work with. It's a little pricy, though, so I don't know if it'll fit your needs.

Jacob is another Java COM bridge, free fom http://www.DanAdler.com. I'm having fair to good luck with doing what I want with IE. Free source, unsupported.
