Java and DDE


I'm developing a reporting system that use excel. I want to implement dynamic data exhcange.

I have been looking at different dde-servers, but I have decided to create my own server. The problem is: I'm not shure how.

The server would preferably be coded in Java and I am going to use Java-applications to access it. I have been looking at the ddeshare-program in windows, but I don't know how to use it and how to get the Java-server into the windows registry(If I need it??)

Please post som example code or links to how this can be done in Java.

Thanks in advance

I have been to this site, but i would as mentioned in the question I would rather code my own server.
why would you implement a DDE server in Java to be accessed by Java clients?

the server does not have to be in java, but I have to be able to access it from java. The only howto's I have found are all in Visual Basic and I don't have a compiler for VB
>>I'm developing a reporting system that use excel. I want to implement dynamic data exhcange.

Surely it would be Excel that was the DDE server, and you'd have Java clients?
