Read and Write Registry key

Hi all,

Basically i'd like to know how to read and write registry keys for windows 2000/XP
More specifically i'd like to create two things:

- An uninstall item for an application i made in the add and remove programs menu
- Create an ODBC Connection to a DB (SQL Server or Oracle)

Of course if you know any other work around to achieve these things then i'm all hears open.

Cheers,
Miraodb

For JVM < 1.5 -> http://www.bayequities.com/downloads/jreg/ (a library that uses JNI)

You'd probably be better trying to introduce that functionality through an installer rather than in the app itself:
