Hello Folks,

I need to read windows registry from java 1.4.2. What is the best way doing it? I know that we can use the jni/c++ libraries. Is there another way using only java?

Thanks.

Be advised that accessing a Windows registry is like opening a mummy's tomb. Once you break the seal, the curse can haunt you forever.

Google for windows registry and JNDI. I am pretty sure I remember seeing a JNDI provider for the Windows Registry.

just out of curiousity, why do you want to do this? shouldn't your java app be portable to any operating system?
