No idea (I am not a D-Bus freedesktop.org developer) what the Java bindings to D-Bus and its future
will be.


In case you are interested, there might be a different solution for Java programs. Exploit a binding
of a dynamic programming language that also has a Java bridge, such that Java programs can easily
take advantage of it. (There would be no need to create Java classes to match the D-Bus service
definitions to take advantage of it.)

If such a solution could be interesting for your I can come up with a brief Java example to
demonstrate applying that scenario such that you can see/assess whether that would be a feasible
route to take for your Java needs for D-Bus interaction.
