Matthias Hölzer-Klüpfel has announced that he just developed an extension to the DCOP collection of tools currently available for KDE-2 that enables DCOP communication between Java applications and the KDE desktop:

List:     kde-devel
Subject:  DCOP bindings for Java

I hacked some code to support DCOP from a Java application, including a 
dcopidl2java code generator. I have put it into kdenonbeta/javadcop, in case 
someone is interested.

Note that I have not fixed the stuff to install properly, so to test it, you 
have to run in locally. Do a

cd tests
make check

and then a 

./server &
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=../bindings/.libs java -classpath ../bindings:. test

This should run a small example.

As I said, this is not finished, so don't complain about the second java 
class I have ever written :)
