I posted a new version of com4j that fixed several bugs.
Every once in a while, you just have to go down to the native code to really feel like a real programmer. Those garbage collections and bytecode verifications are all great, but it's just not so fun to live in an environment where you can't even shoot yourself. Not always, but sometimes.
That was my feeling for the past 1 hour, so I picked up my com4j project and fixed a bunch of bugs and released a new version. For those of you who don't know com4j, it's a Java/COM bridge library that uses Java 5 annotations.
The new version handles pass-by-reference better, and there are a few improvements to the type library importer.
