Couldn't you just call a DCOM implementation (that Java can also interface with) directly?

Not afaik.

You could write a little Java server that could be called remotely, that would then make the com call locally.

to open a small java server that opens the com and send it orders like print turn page etc' is easy but what i want is let say for an example if i have two computers that one has acrobat reader and the other dont have, so the secound can call the com from the first one use it from the first computer. i hope i was clear (engilsh is not my naitve lang).

Then Acrobat reader (per your example) would have to have an automation interface or one would have to be built via a native libary adapter to Acrobat

You'd have to say

"Controller - tell Acrobat to print the page and use the network printer sitting next to me"

But this is getting quite far from Java ... Probably better off in another TA

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

Unless CEHJ can provide some more specific information and details about what he's talking about and how it would be achieved then I don't think you can achieve what you ask.

Hi,
I did not intend to make DCOM support in njawin. This feature is not critical for java applications. I have for an object to make accessible some MS Windows environment without JNI coding.

I know another java-com bridge, which supports this feature. This is J-Integra. It encapsulates an ActiveX or COM Server into CORBA Server.

NJAWIN does not support DCOM. Forget about DCOM. This technology is dead. Use another means, which can substitute DCOM.

For example, I write server modules, which communicate with other word through socket, I also use ISAPIs as mediators, etc.

Its server side is written with C++ and VB. There is also module written in C#. But I cannot give you a piece of its code. The best example is J2EE. Usually a server module communicates with socket and uses Thread Pool. Each client connection has context. So read books how to write server applications.
