I've installed javax.comm package (version 2.0) under Win XP.
I compile and run the following code but don't get any output.
Can anyone tell me why?

Cheers,
Steve

import javax.comm.*;
import java.util.*;

public class PortList
{
  public static void main(String [] args)
  {
       Enumeration portList = CommPortIdentifier.getPortIdentifiers();

          while(portList.hasMoreElements()) {
        CommPortIdentifier portId = (CommPortIdentifier)portList.nextElement();
      if( portId.getPortType() ==
                  CommPortIdentifier.PORT_SERIAL)
        {
          System.out.println("Serial port: " +
                                   portId.getName());
         } else if (portId.getPortType() ==
                     CommPortIdentifier.PORT_PARALLEL)
           {
            System.out.println("Parallel port: " +
                                     portId.getName());
           } else
             System.out.println("Other port: " +
                                      portId.getName());
          }
    }
}

Have you registered the comm package and installed the configuration files properly? Have a look here: http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Programming_Languages/Java/Q_21906501.html

Thanks Girionis!

I'd registered the commpackage correctly with the JDK, but hadn't copied the .dll and .props file into the JRE folders. It really ought to mention this in the installation instructions for the comm package.

Thanks for your (ever-so-quick) response.
