I know that javax.comm from Sun no longer supports Windows but is there a solution available today for COM port communications using Java?

I'm not sure where to go with this.  So does this mean that the JRE/JDK now include the COMM classes?  I am using j2sdk1.4.2_09 currently.

Basically I am just looking to open COM5 (a USB COM driver) and print the incoming COM (a barcode hand scanner) to the screen (println).
