    Smile beginner needs help with OBD-II input

    Hi, I'm a newbie to java programming. I am planning to do a project which will require me writing a Java program that displays variables inputted by another program. Seeing as I am new to Java, I have no idea where to start. How do I take variables from one program and input them into one of my own? The other program is open source, so it should be fairly easy to do (I'm guessing). Someone please point me in the right direction. Thanks.:)

    There is no special way to communicate two Java processes. You will consider them as separate programs and communicate each other. They can communicate over TCP/IP, RMI, CORBA.. All requires you to define some communication protocol based on the requirements of the selected technology.

    Ok thanks! ill look into that. Just by following the links in your reply, I think RMI will work best for what I am trying to do.

    Without RMI you can store the out put of a program into a file or database then access it
