Expose Java to COM

Recommended Posts

Basic question: Can I create a Java object and expose it to COM to be able to use it in AutoIt?

Long version: I've written a Java program that extends the functionality of PDFBox's PDFMergerUtility to add a bookmark at each file that gets added. I compiled it into a jar and it works great from the command line. I was wondering if there was a way to expose a COM object wrapper for the class to basically allow for asynchronous calls... so my AutoIt program can request the PDFMerger to merge 10 documents and continue merging more sets of PDFs and the Java program will continue in the background. Then AutoIt could check to see if all PDFs were merged before closing the object. After this, I was thinking about mimicing the functionality of Acrobat Pro though PDFBox and so on.

Oh... yup, that's exactly what I'm looking for, isn't it? I swear I googled it :(

Now I'm a bit confused... doesn't the Java Access Bridge allow other programs access to GUIs? Is there a way to extend that functionality?
