    Possible but why bother, JNI is really not the best thing in the world.

    JNI is actually pretty good.

    There will be a bit of overhead with each call, so you want to batch operations into few calls.

    You plugin still needs to be in Java, but it can interface with native code.
    Not completely sure of the syntax because it's been awhile, but I think it is something like this:
    1. static
    2. {
    3. //assumes there in a file called in this program's executing directory
    4. System.loadLibrary("mynativecode");
    5. }
    6. ...
    8. //native declarations
    9. public native float nativeMethod(int num1, int num2);
    10. public native float nativeMethod2(int num1, String str);

    Put these in a class somewhere, then run javah on it to get the native headers.
