I'm on the need of using serial ports with a java application. The last time I checked, Sun offered Java Comm as a solution; but now they removed the Api from their site (I'm using winXP). There's an RXTX package as an alternative, but I haven't seen any reviews of it; maybe you could tell me a little.
I'm also thinkin' of using the USB ports, anyone know how the state of development is in jUSB and javax.usb ? Any bugs? Problems? Limitations?
Thanks in advance.
