I have written an external to launch a JVM and call the Java methods  
on Windows and Mac OS. By the external the Java methods can be called  
as external commands or functions of Rev on both platforms. The  
external also enables the Java programs to send messages to Rev's  
handlers.

The demo is downloadable at the following URL:

The demo is created by Runrev 3.0. In the demo, Derby(relational  
database in written Java), HttpClient(http components written Java),  
Red5(Flash server written in Java) and Sphinx-4(speech recognizer  
written in Java) are used.
