GnuPG for Java with GPGME bindings

Hi *,

I want to announce the availability of a Java library that implements
gpgme bindings using native C-calls via JNI (Java Native Interface):
"GnuPG for Java"

It is an alpha release (0.1.2), but it already implements encrypt,
decrypt, sign, verify and keysearch (by fingerprint and text query). 

Currently it runs only under 32-Bit/Intel GNU/Linux (with an installed
gpgme lib and gpg). At least, this is where I tested it.

Thanks to Werner, this library is published under LGPL.

Check this for the binary (Jar) and Javadoc:

If you need features, tell me what you need first, because I do it in my
spare time. We are currently working on a gui client for Java, that uses
"GnuPG for Java", something like kgpg/gpa etc. A first version will be
published this week.

Hope this will bring the wonders of free and strong cryptography to
corporate java developers.
