The history of the Dutch East India Company from its formation in 1602 until its dissolution in 1798 is filled, until the close of the 17th century, with wars and diplomatic relations.

Batavia was the capital of the colonial Dutch East Indies.
Dutch tactics to maintain control and tax revenue at times required nearly all exports from anywhere in the region to be shipped through the city, establishing for the city an overwhelming political and economic dominance that it retains today.
Jakarta was the center of the Dutch effort to retain control over their former colony during the war of independence that ended with the establishment of Indonesia in 1949.

The buildings are like those in Dutch pictures, and were it not for the palm trees, the orchids, the groves of bananas, and the little brown natives we see everywhere, we might imagine ourselves in one of the cities of Holland.
Batavia, where we now are, is one of the principal ports, and Surabaya in eastern Java is another, while there are smaller cities on the north and south coast.

 Colonial Knowledge and Indigenous Power in the Dutch East Indies
The Dutch, in as much as their rhetoric emphasized indigenous rule, were in the position of privilege that allowed them to define and redefine what that role should be.
Throughout these changes, the Dutch maintained that they were simply trying to preserve the indigenous system of rule, and by the early twentieth century had, in effect, created a class of rulers who had become more extractive in their relationship toward their subjects, and at the same time demanded ever more deferential treatment from them.
Although the Dutch were keen to maintain the status of the bupati vis à vis their subjects, they forced them into the position of becoming a large cog in the colonial machine: in a sense turning them into tools of Dutch administration.

The Dutch Indies government’s interim advisor for native affairs, R.A. Kern, even spoke of "a milestone in the Muhammadan movement in this country."[1] For a few years these issues kept Indonesian Muslim leaders occupied and caused splits in the ranks; then suddenly the caliphate issue dropped from the agenda, never to reappear.
The chief vehicles of Abdulhamid's pan-Islamic propaganda in the East Indies were the Ottoman consuls in Singapore and Batavia, and to a much lesser extent the Indonesian hajis, returning to the Indies after performing the pilgrimage, in some cases followed by a long residence in Mecca.
Dutch Indies officials were highly suspicious of the hajis, many of whom they considered as anti-government agitators.

It was given a monopoly on Dutch trade in the Indonesian archipelago, and certain sovereign rights such as the creation of an army and a fleet.
The company's main base was Batavia in Java (Indonesia); ships sailed there via the Cape of Good Hope, a colony founded by the company in 1652 as a staging post.
During the 17th and 18th centuries the company used its monopoly of East Indian trade to pay out high dividends, but wars with England and widespread corruption led to a suspension of payments in 1781 and a takeover of the company by the Dutch government in 1798.
