+The Java Communications API (also known as javax.comm) is a Java extension
+that provides access to RS-232 hardware (serial ports) and limited access
+to IEEE-1284 hardware (parallel ports).
+
+Note: this is an obsolete version of the Solaris implementation of Javacomm.
+It is intended for use only with JMRI (available at Slackbuilds.org).
+It is not necessarily suitable for use with other applications.
