I understood how to integrate the application as described in the following links
http://www.eclipse.org/articles/article.php?file=Article-ActivexSupportInSwt/index.html
and http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/opensource/library/os-activex/# , but the problem now is that it requires a program ID. i tried to find the program Id of the application from Windows registry but it seems that the application does not have a program ID. IS there any alternate approach by which i can integrate or any way by which i can assign a program ID to the application

Is the application that you want to embed written as either an Active X
control or an OLE Document? This is something that an app whose intent
is to be embeddable must do explicitly, and most do not do this. There
is not an alternate way to integrate a native application in SWT. From
SWT you can use the Program class to launch an external application, but
I don't know if this would make sense in your context or not.

Hm - IIRC on windows we once used the native handle of the composite and
passed that to the native application, but I can't find the code anymore :-(
