You can find a description of how to call C from Perl here:

After more thought, here is how it might work. If you have a
C++ class you want to call from Java you would have to write
a corresponding Java class with all its methods declared to be
"native". Then you put a JNI wrapper on each C++ method. Easy
enough, but no doubt there would be other gotchas.
