RMI through ColdFusion MX?

I want to play around with RMI, but not solely on my machine (or home network). I have a web site which, unfortunately, does not support Java, however, it does support both ColdFusion MX and .NET. As I understand it, CFMX has JRun built-in or integrated with it and JRun, in turn, can run the RMI (service, I presume?).
Thus, is it possible to create simple wrappers in ColdFusion on the server side to support RMI on that site?
If not, what would be an alternative where, again, I could have either something basic in ColdFusion or .NET to initiate the session on yet another hosting site? Eventually, I'm planning for the site to make use of both .NET and Java (RMI) if for no other reason than the fact that those are the two technologies I am most interested in presently (I mention this in case your first thought is---why not switch hosts?).
I'm curious what my options are.
Thanks,
Ross

Ross,
MX with Jrun provide full support for JAVA/JSP/Servlets

U can use cfobject tag for that

Thanks Sunitha. Do you give up any or most of the flexibility that you would have by going through a server that natively supports JSPs by having to use the CF wrapper?

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
