I think one important use of J/Link will be to write packages that interact
with the user in a full GUI fashion. There are a few examples supplied with
the software which hint at what might be possible.
Another interesting example uses J/Link to read data into the kernel from a
The nice thing is that it would seem that many examples can be coded
entirely within Mathematica - just invoking built-in Java classes. However,
since each Java call requires a process swap (just like MathLink, on which
it is based), heavy duty applications may require some Java programming.
Since Java is supposed to be platform independant, this should be a very
