I Decided to Use Com Connect

I searched for Java Com bridges. First I tried google and came across a few programs that looked promising:

http://www.ezjcom.com

http://j-integra.intrinsyc.com/

The interface for ezcom looked nice and there was a free version but I decided to search sourceforge for something free. The two most relevant programs I found were:

http://sourceforge.net/projects/jcom2/
http://jcom2.sourceforge.net/

http://sourceforge.net/projects/comconnect/
http://comconnect.sourceforge.net/tutorial.html

comconnect seemed more relevet for many reaons which include:
-It is still an active project
-It supports both Com and .Net
-The Com application and the Java application don’t need to be on the same computer.

In my search I also found some other interesting bridges:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/propane/
http://propane.sourceforge.net/

http://sourceforge.net/projects/jvm-bridge/
http://semantic.org/jvm-bridge/

Propane is a bridge between java and javascript. I find this interesting because I use firefox a lot which is programed a large part in java script.

The other is a bridge between Haskel and Java.  I find this interesting puerly because I find functional programming languages interesting.  I can not think of an immediate use for it though.
