how do i call a Visual Basic dll in java code

Posted by Matt Gerrans on October 10, 2001 at 5:04 PM

> is it any different from calling dll's written in c???

No it isn't any different. A dll is a dll regardless of what language was used to produce it. Of course, what you pass to a given function in the dll may differ depending upon what sort of data that function was expecting (which could vary based on the data types of the language). Generally, however, dlls created with VB are intended to be compatible with C/C++ programs that might want to call them, so you should probably be able to treat if as it were a C dll.
