    Question Signal to Motherboard's ports (and device)

    Hello everybody , first post here .
    (I am not even sure if this is the correct section because I couldnt find a better one... )
    I am a student learning java , I have finished some basic game developing and the fundamentals in java and now I am learning OpenGL and doing other miscellaneous stuff with friends. Basically , I am trying to do stuff and learn while trying to complete the task. I am looking for something that would work in many platforms but linux would be ok to start with. I need to be able to send signal to all the available motherboard ports. Yes , that pretty much it from tha java-side (there are also some stuff I already know how to do). Now , the fact that makes me think is what signal to send/how to send signal to the device connected e.g. a usb light and make it do stuff. But one step at a time! Thanks in advance. If you havent got any solutions go ahead , tell me other stuff like , you can use this with that and this works only there. Any piece of information will come in handy!

    Java is not the best language to access the hardware to that level. C for sure, maybe C++, would be a better way to go.

    Well , it seems yes. Anyway , I know about 7 programming languages excluding C/C++/C#. Im considering learning C/C++ soon(Actually , I have the editor setted up.) As a starting point , I just need to provide electricity to the usb whenever I want. I am really good with electronics and stuff , I have already messed around with usb cables , currents and such. I am planning something good and I manage to get even a little bit working , it would be really epic...
    Will libraries like jUSB or so let me do these things?BTW , I want to use java due to the easy multiplatforming capabilities...

    Possibly, jUSB or you might check out usb4java, but when someone says, "I need to be able to send signal to all the available motherboard ports," I wouldn't recommend Java.

    Well , ok ... It seems that java is not that good for that part. Anyway , I am now building the 'scripting' language and file extensions. Messing around with the libraries , till I get my desktop parts back from RMA , Im stuck with a crappy laptop . Thanks for the help anyway!
