Post date: Oct 28, 2010 2:46:29 PM
Added functionality for creating and registering Java COM servers.
Added the ServerManager tool for registering and managing Java COM servers.
Support for the IClassFactory2 COM interface.
New documentation for the ComfyJ library.
Added the ComfyJDemo application demonstrating ComfyJ's capability to integrate ActiveX controls into Java Swing applications and to interact with them using the Automation technology.
Added a new constructor to IUknownImpl that takes a Pointer.Void as a parameter for convenience.
New samples for the ComfyJ library.
Improved the Code Generation application, namely added the ability to generate Java wrappers for a type library as well as for a COM component.
Improved stability of the Variant and BStr classes.
Resolved several memory management issues in NativeResourceCollector.
Registration of a run-time COM server's interfaces is not required any more. Now IClassFactory automatically registers all interfaces implemented by the server class.
Fixed the problem with setting a BStr value in multi-dimensional SafeArrays.
Fixed the problem with reassigning a value in the BStr object.
Fixed the problem with showing modal OCX windows in OleContainer.
Fixed the problem with focus events in OleContainer.
Fixed the problem with processing keyboard events in OleContainer.
Fixed the Access violation problems in NativeResourceCollector.
Fixed the problem in SafeArray.release() method. It did not work when its AutoDelete property was set to false.
The Automation.release() method is deprecated since it is not necessary and confusing.
Removed the stack trace printing in the OleContainer.insertObject(IOleObject object) method if an object does not support the IPersistStorage interface.
Fixed the problem with reading a UInt value from Variant.
Fixed the problem with reading SafeArray (byRef) from Variant using the Varinat.getValue() method.
Fixed the memory leak problem when Variant contains a BStr.
Fixed the problem with releasing memory in the BStr class.
Fixed the problem with calling a dispatch method in IDispatchServer, whose DispID is 0.
