Hello world USB java
Hello all :)
I know a bit of java since some years ago. I have to do a project for university based on a communication protocol between a robot arm and a java application using a USB cable.
I use NETBEANS IDE 6.7.1 to develop my simple applications. My real problem is I don't know how to handle the USB, what librarys it uses, what plugins will be needed for handling USB, etc. In other words I don't know what to start with.
I researched about USB tecnology and found out that USB 1.1 will be enough because I won't need a big ammount of data transferred, just 2 or 3 dozens of bytes need to be put in the cable, and the time won't be an issue for sure.
See if this old article is still applicable.
