(Note that we are not affiliated with the NetBean or jawin project. If you use jawin in your project, don't forget to check the jawin license.
And: an Eclipse tutorial can be found here: http://forum.iopus.com/viewtopic.php?t=2703)

1)Download the jawin ZIP from http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=66397&package_id=64298, unzip it to some place on your disk

2) Create/Set up NetBeans Java project:

3) Make the "Main.java" look like this:
Code: Select all
/*
 * To change this template, choose Tools | Templates
 * and open the template in the editor.
 */

package imacrostest;

//This code makes use of jawin from http://jawinproject.sourceforge.net/
//jawin license: http://jawinproject.sourceforge.net/LICENSE.txt

//two imports from jawin.jar
import org.jawin.DispatchPtr;
import org.jawin.win32.Ole32;

/**
 *
 * @author name
 */
public class Main {

    /**
     * @param args the command line arguments
     */
 public static void main(String[] args) {
      try {
         Ole32.CoInitialize();

         DispatchPtr app = new DispatchPtr("imacros");

         //Calling iMacros methods
         app.invoke("iimInit", null);
         app.invoke("iimPlay", "CODE:URL GOTO=http://www.iopus.com");
         app.invoke("iimPlay", "CODE:TAG POS=1 TYPE=A ATTR=TXT:iMacros EXTRACT=TXT");

         //manually cast return values to correct type
         String iret = app.invoke("iimGetLastExtract").toString();

         app.invoke("iimExit");
                        System.out.println(iret);

         Ole32.CoUninitialize();
      }

      catch (Exception e){
         e.printStackTrace();
      }

   }

}



Done.
