Hey what is the best/easiest way to have java class interact with Microsoft COM? I know its not a good idea since application becomes platform dependant but I have no other choice since applications API that I am trying to integrate requires you to interact with COM
Thanks

Google for "Java Com Bridge". There are some commercial products out there and some freebies. I've played with Jacob from DanAdler.com and it seemed ok for first level stuff, but I couldn't get to some of the COM interfaces I wanted. I chose not to bet my reputation on it. Apache Commons has something just for IO to Excel, I think but I never can remember the name. Let us know if you find a suitable solution!

I've never used it, but you might want to take a look at Sun's Java Access Bridge For Windows Operating System.
I'm moving this to the Other Java APIs forum...
