P: 1
I am doing a project on controlling a stepper motor through computer parallel port over a network. I have also done parallel port programming in C but I need some help on how to send output on parallel port pins in java.

You need an api to talk to serial ports. Start with http://java.sun.com/products/javacomm/ from Sun. There are a number of libs and commercial products out there that are based on the Sun foundation, but some have done their own thing too. Apart from that, there is no easy answer to this.
