I have used the method below to open and write to the com port.
I wonder if anybody can help me write a method which reads from the com port.
Please show some example code though I'm not very skilled in JAVA coding, yet :-)

       public void printCom1(String OutPrint)
       {
         if (OutPrint != "")
         {
            PrintWriter out = null;
            try
            {
               out = new PrintWriter(new BufferedWriter(new FileWriter("Com1")));
            }
            catch ( IOException e)
            {}
            out.print(OutPrint);
            out.flush();
            out.close();
       }
