Controlling Ableton objects from mxj

I have just started out using M4L and mxj and I have written my first java “Hello world “externals;) I am familiar with the Java programming language but I am still trying to get my head around the possibilities in M4L – e.g is it possible to start/stop a clip in Ableton from a Java external?

Hi KMLL,
the Live Api is not accessible via Java, only through JavsScript.
cheers j

Hi – Thank you for the reply! Javascript would be a good route to go / alternative since I have also developed quite a bit with that in the past. Do you happen to know of any good resources describing accessing ableton objects from js?
