COM4J updates

April 27th, 2012

It’s been a while, but I’ve posted a new version of COM4J. COM4J is a library that lets you talk to Windows COM components. Unlike similar libraries lika jacob, which makes you feel like you are working with reflection, COM4J is designed to work with type-safe annotated interfaces, which makes you feel like you are working with Java libraries. COM4J is also built on top of vtable invocation, not on IDispatch, so it can work with components without the dual interface support (boy those words bring back memories!)

I use this library in Jenkins, among other places, to provide a better native integration.

The major change in this version is that it finally has 64bit Java support. The original work was contributed in 2011, but I’ve never cut a release out of it officially. It contains a number of bug fixes, additional conversions support. The code is now on GitHub, and the website is moved to here.
