Subject [jira] Commented: (DIRMINA-21) New transport type: serial port communication
Date Mon, 09 May 2005 08:02:14 GMT

Julien Vermillard commented on DIRMINA-21:

there is mostly 2 java API for serial/parallel. none of them are integrated in the JDK.

1st - Sun Comm API :
It's Sun serial/parallel API for java, it's only for Solaris (x86 & Sparc) and Windows,
it's a "Java Standard Extension".

2nd - RXTX :
It's a native lib providing serial and parallel communication for the Java Development Toolkit
(JDK). All deliverables are under the gnu LGPL license. Works for Linux & Windows, support
i2c and RS485 communication and provide compatibility with Sun Comm API.

In my opinion, for all the standard serial and paralell communication the best is to use the
javax.comm.* API and for run it under linux to "plug" RXTX as native implementation. For more
advanced serial communication (RS485, I2C) to use* directly.
