    Default Java on Linux to communicate with Windows via DCOM

    Does anyone here have any experience with implementing Java apps for Linux that must communicate with COM objects on a Windows host using DCOM? Can it be done easily without the use of a commercial DCOM library? And what are the limitations?

    If anyone knows of a site with a discussion forum where cross-platform Java programmers hang out, please let me know.

    If I remember right java basically stays away from COM and DCOM and instead uses CORBA. Probably the only way would be to use the JNI but it would not allow you to enjoy cross platform anymore.

    Thanks. The Java app only needs to run on Debian Linux, so I don't care about source code portability. And nothing about the Windows OS is CORBA, so it's gotta be COM or nothing.
