I need to port an existing Java app (original developer used NetBeans 5.5, JDK 1.6, and platform was WinXP) for deployment on a Linux (RHE4) platform. But the application relies on serial comms.

It looks as if I should be able to use javax.comm, but I keep running across references to the need for RXTXcomm.jar, but it looks as if RXTXcomm.jar is badly outdated.

Has anyone out there developed Java apps with serial comms support on Linux? Any direction would be greatly appreciated!

We are using the IBM java comm implementation.
The application is in production by almost 4 years, without problems.
