We needed a serial solution for our Wyse terminals using Windows Terminal Service Client with the RDP protocol. We tried to use the open source commapi from RXTX. The RXTX commapi has a bug which causes our program to freeze. With SerialPort our application works reliably.
Testimonials For SerialPort and our other APIs

You have been very responsive and the packages are very well done.
I always select the SerialPort API over javax.comm.SerialPort whenever I have a choice. The javax.comm.SerialPort API is difficult to setup and to use, especially having to deal with the silly properties file. In addition (or should I say, in subtraction) javax.comm.SerialPort does not provide a proper transmit timeout feature, so threads have the potential of lockup when transmitting.
Thanks for all your help, we got our program working. It was refreshing to see your willingness to help, you don't see that kind of helpfulness in the software industry too often.
Setting out to write a serial port application in Java, I had thought that the world of java serial port libraries was in shambles. I tried everything I could find and couldn't get anything to work until I found Serialio.com SerialPort. These libraries worked right off the bat, and gave me the flexibility to choose how I wanted to implement them, and Serialio.com implementation of javax.comm kept me from having to rewrite much of my code. Every step along the way to getting my application working, the SerialPort support helped me keep going, promptly…

The SerialPort toolkit made me look very good in front of a customer today. Hats off to you!
I wrote you just hours ago about how I've had problems with Sun's COMM API implementation with our product that utilizes serial communications to talk to a GSM Modem. Sometimes we get this error code from the Java COMM API. "Win32 Comm Driver: Error 995". I thought it was something badly implemented with Sun's API. Sure enough, I order your product and no more problems! I didn't even have to change my code since you provide the Comm API wrapper. Beautiful! Thank you so much!
