Why would anyone want to do that? Sounds like reinventing the wheel. A
better approach seems to be to write your GUI and DB interface in Java, and
then call the R engine with the appropriate R-libraries to do the hard work.
R offers infrastructure for that, see SJava
(http://www.omegahat.org/download/R/packages/), although I have no
significant experience with that.
