I'm trying to create a java front end for an industrial application and need to send and receive data via serial port communication.  Is there a simple way t do this as with TCP/IP.  If not what sorts of low level capabilities does java have for this type of endeavor?

There is at least one commercial package out there that enables java to use ports. Take a look to the previously answered questions for this information.

Check out SUNs homepage and surf to the Java developer Connection page. There you will find the java communications API (early access 2) somewhere, I thnik that's what you're looking 4.
And it's free and platform independent!!!!!! No need to pay anything.
