It really all depends on what you want to do with the Java program.

depending on how your codes (java and autoit) are written, you shouldn't have too much trouble. If the java program is an applet, you're not going to be able to work with the controls etc, which would be an obstacle, but if it's a console application, you should have no issues passing values as command line parameters back and forth, and reading the output from the console as necessary. There are lots of posts about how to make your script accept command line parameters, or read from the console, both are possible with your java application also, assuming you're the one writing it. If you have to go with an applet for your java application, my suggestion would be to pass values via a text file, so that you can have the applet populate it's own controls etc. If you have no control as to the coding of the java application, ie: it's an applet you have to use for work and can't modify the code, i'd suggest getting the "DJ Java Decompiler" (freeware that i think i got from cnet a while back) to get access to the code, (assuming you can do so without getting fired), and translate it to your own autoit gui. you can then have it work exactly like the applet does, interacting with the same files etc, and you won't need to actually use their applet/application at all. That would be the most work however, that's why i suggest it as a last resort.

Thanks for your interest, i think i got what you are talking about but not that much, i am very new to AutoIT.

my java program is an application, and all what i want in the AutoIT script to do is detecting when mouse clicked or keyboard keystrock is pushed anywhere on the screen and pass it as a parameter for the java application, that for the sender side. and i have a reciever which will receive the data and execute the action sent.

plz it is very important to me to know how to do it i am stucked!

what information exactly do you want sent? the coordinates clicked? the data in the control clicked on? the text from some field?

i already did sending mouse coordinates in java.

the targe now is when the mouse is clicked a flag is set to be true,

and the receiver will check this falg if it is true it will do a mouse a click, that is for the mouse.

but for keyboard the sender should send which keystrock on the keyboard is pressed, an the receiver should press the same key. got it?

as far as actually 'linking' to java, you're not going to be able to interact with an already running application any more than you could with your keyboard and mouse. the way to link them together, is to have one execute the other, so that you can pass values back and forth... Really your easiest option may be to just do the whole project in one language or the other. Otherwise you may have to rework the way that the java app works all together...

ok if i could execute the java app from the AutoIt and vise versa i will be very happy, bcause it will help me a lot! do you have an example or a link, i am searching the internet but cant find anything fits my case.

sorry for bothering you but really i am very vey very new to AutoIT.

You could probably use AutoIt within your Java application using the AutoItX3.dll. this way you may have no need for 2 applications, unless that's your preference.

But you could use FileInstall() for the java application, to use within au3.exe, then use a Run() command to execute the Java application .

i don't know anything about the dll approach or whatever, but you can execute the java application from your script just by using a
Run('"C:\YourPath to Java\bin\java C:\Path to the java application\app Parameter1 parameter2 parameter3"')
