JNIWrapper 2.0 Beta with Java-COM integration available!

Today the JNIWrapper Team is proud to present the Beta release of JNIWrapper for Windows version 2.0.

From now on, the JNIWrapper for Windows is more than just JNI bridge. JNIWrapper 2.0 enables you to use Microsoft COM components in your Java applications.

Our goal is to provide developers with an easy-to-use capability to integrate virtually any COM/ActiveX object and control its properties as if it is a pure Java object. The bi-directional access also allows accessing Java objects from COM as if they were COM components. For even more ease, we provide our code generation utility that helps you generate java sources for COM, OLE, and ActiveX classes or components by given class identifier using JNIWrapper COM Bridge classes.

Please check the WinPack Demo program where OLE Container added allowing to embed OLE/ActiveX objects into Java applications and control them via the Automation class. The example allows opening and viewing PDF and Video files inside the Java program.

Your feedback on this Beta version is highly appreciated. Please use our support or feedback facilities to contact developers if you have questions or suggestions regarding this new release.

JNIWrapper for Windows version 2.0 Beta is now available for download and evaluation only. Commercial release of version 2.0 is scheduled by mid-September, but the final date will depend on user input and feedback.
