Linking C or C++ to gcj compiled .o files

I've browsed the documentation on the sourceware website, and I can't
quite work this out:

As far as I can tell, CNI is an alternative to JNI.  What I want is
something the other way round.  I want the main shell of a program to be
written in C/C++, and to link it to some portions written in java.

Is this possible/is there documentation on it?

Aside: The gcj frontend won't (apparently) compile inner classes.  Am I
right in thinking that if I compile .java --> .class using a compiler
which does support inner classes (e.g. jikes) then I can compile .class
--> .o using gcj?
