Dear Sirs,

How can I create a custom java class that inherits methods & attributes from a given Activex?
Sample of codes will be appreciated, for a java beginner that I am.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Practicably speaking, you can't - though few things are impossible. It's like turning a small car into a wheelbarrow - it could be done - but shouldn't be.

If you're recklessly determined, you'd need a Java-COM bridge and would call the COM methods of the ActiveX, but you couldn't inherit anything.

In other words Java doesn't deal activex?
No,  they're unconnected technologies, hence the need for a bridge. ActiveX is a Windows-only, native code technology

Okkkkk. Do you have any example how to implement the bridge
Why don't you use C# .NET? That is the right tool for the job

Unfortunately I never used C#.NET. I am  migrating from dBASE to Java.

I've requested that this question be deleted for the following reason:

I will focus on java  library available, instead of looking at 3rd party activex
