JMX (Java Management Extensions) is a 'standard' that is part of the J2EE
specs (I think?). You can find out all about it at

Most, if not all commercial and 'free'/OS Java application servers support
it, and the JBoss app server (, is a built upon it. If you are
going to use JMX, then a 'bare bones' Jboss may be the best answer

Remember that regardless of what Java method you use, if you want to call
'native' API's, the there is going to have to be some 'native' executables in
the mix some where that are accessed via JINI (e.g. a C++ or Object Pascal
DLL or SO).
