do i need to install netbeans 6.8 for serial port support?
import javax.comm*; gives an error in my netbeans 5.5.1 … what could be the actual problem?
i downloaded comm api jar folder from : http://www.oreilly.com.tw/bookcode/java_io/ where to add this one so that import javax.comm.* won't give any error
Download the COMM API from here and add the jar to your netbeans classpath.
Even if that works for you, I still suggest upgrading to NetBeans 6.8. Version 5.5 is too outdated.
