What all tools are available for porting Windows-based Active X control which uses DirectX, to Linux platform? I have explored to some extent and zeroed onto two options - WineLib and JAVA. Which one is better choice? Are there any other options available?

Wine is the porting of the windows API to Linux. Java is a programming language.

Since ActiveX is three/four abstraction layers above windows, with Wine it should work (but performance may be a problem, and also some not supported windows APIs!
Java may mean a complete rewrite of the active X. That may be a longer task, but not necessarily difficult.
