Basically, I just want to know where I should put the three important files included in the Java Comm API: comm.jar, javax.comm.properties and win32com.dll. Currently, comm.jar has been included in the project. Javax.comm.properties has been put under /jvm/lib directory. Win32com.dll has been put under /notes directory.
But it's still throwing errors, i.e., "Caught java.lang.NullPointerException: name can't be null while loading driver com.sun.comm.Win32Driver"
Any help you can provide in resolving this matter will be greatly appreciated.
If someone else is interested in finding a solution to this Java API, I've managed to get it working. I have put my solution here. I hope it helps!
