    Default Java and Electronics

    Hi Guys,

    I was wondering if there is some way you can make Java communicate with different electronic components such as tranceivers etc. I would like to operate an RC car via my computer possibly using Java (just because I know Java better than C).

    Any help will be appreciated. Thanks in advance!

    Thats great info thank you very much but I still dont know how to "program" these boards. Do I need a specific version/emulator of Java to do this?

    For USB based controllers, you can try either jUSB or jsr-80 to interact with USB devices ...

    (why is it taking so long for Java to incorporate USB support?)
