I'm trying to get at some controls in a Java app in order to 'scrape' data from the SWING fields (i.e. imagine an DB app which contains fields like 'Record #', 'Name', etc.) from a WIN32 app.

My first question is whether anyone has found a way to get at Java controls from outside the JVM -- OR -- is it possible from another JVM application?

Any pointers appreciated. Thanks,

P.S. I've tried searching here with not much success & google hasn't turned up much either....
