I think the best way is via a Java-COM bridge.

I have some links about this:

1. Free: http://www.nevaobject.com (go to Java, then Java2COM)

2. Expensive: http://www.linar.com (go to JIntegra) and http://www.halcyonsoft.com/ (go to R-JAX). I like JIntegra most, because they can be used 100%
pure Java, because JIntegra talks DCOM over the wire to the COM-object.

3. About COM, read http://users.rcn.com/danadler/javacom/ too, this is very interesting.

4. Bridge2Java from IBM: http://www.alphaworks.ibm.com/tech/bridge2java 

Let me tell you, programming COM from Java is a bit complicated. You should know three fields very well before starting this:

1. Java programming
2. COM programming
3. Exchange programming

It is not for the faint of heart! I wish you good luck!

Another solution: Maybe you can configure the Exchange server to write the address list to a file. Then read that file from servlet.

Thanks dnoelpp.
You have given me some new leads to follow, although I was
think more along the lines of opening a socket connection to Exchange ( ip addres : 143) and using some IMAP commands to direclt access the global address list.

Okay, that's an idea, too, but then you are in the area of Exchange and IMAP programming! This is not Java-specific anymore... Only if you have special question on how to open network connections or the like. Thanks for the points, anyway.
