Java Communications API and Serial Ports Live Forever with Java Embedded

"I love Java technology! But, I have split-personality disorder. No, I don't. Yes, I do..."

Here's one of the Dr. Dobb's bloggers, Al Williams, expressing his love-hate relationship with Java Embedded technology and serial ports.

See:

I love Java! Yes, I do!

Here's a quote:

 The lines, however, are blurring 
 between all the different kinds 
 of systems. You almost can't avoid 
 Java somewhere. The Arduino uses 
 Java internally. So does Eclipse. 
 Many data acquisition systems need 
 to connect over a network and Java 
 works well for that, either on the 
 device or running on a host PC (or 
 even a Raspberry Pi).
Good for you, Al! At least you know Java technology on small embedded devices is there and ready for you whenever you come around and warm up to Java Embedded. :-)

It's good to find that there are replacements to hoary old Java Comms and crufty RXTX. PureJavaComm sounds very interesting.
