Yes, most things that jbpatch affects require a reboot. This is because classes are only loaded once (on startup, or whenever they are accessed for the first time).

EDIT: Actually, just being able to do a client/server thing and have a native app and java app communicate would be great (through a shared file, or a named pipe, if necessary).
Much, if not all, of this, is possible. You may indeed have to circumvent the built-in security mechanisms, but that's pretty easy. For instance: Runtime.exec
...and, of course, there is still LIPC. Amazon probably introduced it to keep their mess of Java, talking to Webkit, talking to native apps, somewhat under control.
