I have a small Java code which I exported to a .jar file.

The .jar file has some methods, one of which is a simple method (that displays a message box). Now, I want to write a perl script that can call this method.

How do I go about this? How do I import the jar file in a Perl script? After importing the jar file, how do I call the method?

One solution is to call your java method from c using jni, and then create a perl wrapper for the c function.

swig[^] may help you getting this done faster.

You can use Jace[^] to create a c++ wrapper for your java project. Then use swig to create a perl wrapper for the c++ code.

You can always try:
Call Java from Perl
[^] - it will probably work, but I haven't tried it myself.

Is there a way to directly call the java method from perl. I'm not very confident about writing a C-program to do this.

Thank you. I think "Call Java from Perl" should do the trick.
