If you find out, I'd love to hear it.
We know we can call Java objects from VB via DOS, including using comand line arguments. This is effective, but rather crude don't you think?
Also, at http://java.sun.com/j2se/vb.development.center.html
I found this:
The Java Client Access Services (CAS) COM Bridge lets Windows developers create native client applications that access Java components deployed on a J2EE application server. The Java CAS COM Bridge helps to integrate Java technology and Windows Platforms together by providing a set of COM objects that let any COM-enabled client application establish a connection to a Java application server and obtain references to Java components. (Free with registration to the Java Developer Connection).
Nicer, but not not exactly what I'm looking for.
I would like to find out how to package Java objects in a VB executable & allow them to be called directly.
Maybe one of the forums at the JDC called Native Methods, there is a lot of Q&A on Java objects calling VB & vice versa, dll handling & COM objects. Too many for me to have figured it all out yet, but it may help.
