The goal of the project is to provide a better integration of Java and COM.

- Binds directly to the vtable interface (not IDispatch) for improved performance and broeader support for more COM interfaces.
- Supports event callback
- Works on 32bit and 64bit JVM
- Quick Introduction
- User's Guide --- the runtime semantics of com4j
- Distributing your applications that use com4j
- Using COM events with com4j
