read a proe file thru jlink


New member

I am not a CAD guy, but there is requirement that i have to read ProE files and create/update BOM and other parameters in my database.

i have to read these details from ProE files that are there on a network drive. I know java and came to know about jlink.

Went through documentation and tried to read a file through a asynchronous connection, buti am getting a null pointer exception i am trying to read a part.

can any one help.

i am planing to use jlink, so that i can extract BOM information from asm files. then update that in a database (oracle),

i am not working with PoIntralink.

Problem is we dont have any meta data stored for these files in database, i am trying to build one.
