 We have finally configured the R-Java interface as a `regular' R
package. This allows R users to create arbitrary Java objects and call
any accessible method. It has a reasonably sophisticated mechanism for
handling transferring of arguments from R to Java and vice-versa, and
allows Java classes to be implemented via R functions.

The package and all the documentation is available from
or the contrib/Devel sections of CRAN and its mirrors.
It runs on Unix machines. (When we know there are no
major problems on these systems, we will work on the
Windows port. So any feedback is very much appreciated.)

 Thanks for your time.
