MPI Java wrapper introduction

This draft presents a Java language interface for MPI. There are some issues specific to Java that must considered in the design of this interface that go beyond the simple description of language bindings. In particular, in Java, we must be concerned with the design of objects, their methods, the feature of Java native methods, rather than just the design of a language-specific functional interface to MPI. Fortunately, the original design of MPI was based around the notion of objects, so a natural set of classes is already part of MPI.
