Hi i would like to be able to retrieve data from the port com1 of my computer. A machine is connected to that port and it sends signals to the com1 port. When i use Hyper terminal in windows i am able to read the lines, is there a way to do this in java?
Thanks, yes i've searched a bit and i came upon the JavaComm api but it would work only in linux and solaris, Then i found the rxtx api, this one is for windows, mac os x and linux... but the problem is that i don't know how to use it in my app, there are no samples!
ok, i found out some samples from the JavaComm api. I replaced the javax.comm.*; with gnu.io.*; and it worked! The prob is that the sample is very confusing, thought it is working just like the hyper terminal of windows!
