Sounds like a great opportunity to dig into building a Perl wrapper for
the C++ API. I've heard SWIG is a nice way for doing this. Pick up a copy
of Extending and Embedding Perl from Manning which talks all about how
to do this. EEP has a section on SWIG, and details the options you will have.
You also could try using a CPAN module like Java  or Inline::Java to
wrap the Java directly in Perl. I have no experience with either, so I can't
comment on how well they work. But it would be interesting. At the very least,
if you come up with a workable solution it would make a killer
