Java and Global Sections?

» close window

The Question is:

Given there's a Java application server available on OpenVMS now, how would I
 access an OpenVMS global section from a Java application?

The Answer is :

  Java quite deliberately does not provide pointers, which means that
  direct references to position-independent sections are not immediately
  feasible.  You would have to connect to a routine written in a language
  supporting pointers, and access the section from there.
