I am sure you can do all those things. Unforunately someone else will have to answer. All I can help you with is your last question. Get the free book "Thinking in java" at http://www.bruceeckel.com He shows how to use JNI in appendix B.
Sorry this is not to reply to your question, but to suggest that next time if you put the subject line in such a way that it includes/indicates what your message is all about, you can get many more meaningful responses. Thanks.
