Description (last modified by curtis)

We have created a set of  C++ bindings for Bio-Formats. They use  Jace to create C++ proxy classes corresponding to Java classes, to provide native applications an easy way to call  Bio-Formats's functionality.

We would like to extend this approach to other Java libraries such as our LOCI Plugins. Hence, we would like to streamline the build process: Java JAR file in, C++ project out (ideally, C++ shared libraries out). Ideally, we would like to add this functionality to the Jace package itself, but if that is not possible, then we can create a Jace-based tool that performs this operation as seamlessly as possible.

In the context of ImageJ, this approach will yield a way for native C++ applications to easily access much of the functionality of ImageJ via JNI.
