I am working with MapReduce, in order to analyze MD trajectories. I am
interested in using VMD in Java, but I am unsure on how to integrate VMD
with Java code. I have read about libraries that allow the execution of
C/C++ code in Java, but I have not found a lot of information regarding the
VMD C++ API, and how to create programs that link against VMD. I would like
to avoid using the Python and Tcl APIs, since they present some overheads
and I am trying to make my code as efficient as possible.

Could anybody point me in the right direction in order to integrate VMD
natively with Java? What VMD API should I use? Any other considerations or
documentation that I should regard?
