    Java/EJB talking to COM

    chris Newbie

      This is an age-old problem, but one to which we don't seem to be able to get an easy answer:

      How can we get a Java EJB object talking to a COM component? We have no need to propogate a transactional context, so it *should* be straightforward! We are using JBoss 2.4.4, moving to 3.0 soon.

      Solutions that I have seen already, but that don't seem ideal, are:

      * Use a product called JIntegra - we have rejected this on grounds of cost.
      * Wrap the COM object in a J++ object and run in the Microsoft JVM, then
      have the native Java talk to it through RMI. This seems too much of a hack,
      and perhaps fraught with incompatibility issues.

      Any help is much appreciated.
