Sure, you can do this.  At least, you can on Unix-y machines.  I'm not
too sure whether Windows DLLs are supported yet.  Maybe one of the
Windows experts can speak up.

We don't know -- it depends on the particular package.

Generally compiling .class files works fine.  Sometimes it depends
how they were created -- the gcj verifier has a few known bugs that
some newer compilers trigger.  The other, more likely, potential
problem is that libgcj doesn't have complete API coverage.  So there
might be standard packages you need that we don't implement.

You can read all about it:
