Adding a Java HLA binding to CERTI has been asked several times.
The fact is we have some beginning work on this subject:
but it is not near the end. It was a student intnership which was not long
enough to put the task till the end.

May I ask why you need Java interface to CERTI ?
Do you want to have an HLA Federate which is 100% Java?

Would  a Portico/CERTI bridge be enough? (see http://www.porticoproject.org/)
Or do you really need "native" CERTI in Java?

I see.
