Can someone please tell me how to read the registry on the LOCAL machine. Everything I have seen so far onl pertains to remote objects. I can't imagine Java not having a facility to read the local registry on a workstation.
Please help....thanks.

Sun's JDK is developed for cross-platforms. It does not provide Windows specific features to read Windows's registry. You have to use Microsoft's Visual J++. It comes with Windows-specific foundation classes.
Alternatively, you can use JNI. Write the registry access functions as a DLL and export those functions. Make a native method call in the Java program to access the Windows registry.

I haven't had a need to do anything like this but I imagine that somewhere out there someone has already written just such a DLL. Maybe an internet search will turn something up.

No holds barred. And no bars holed. Except this tiny ad:
