Creating mobi file in java

Hi, I have been searching the Internet for some information on how to create a mobi ebook file from within Java. I don't see why this would be difficult but there doesn't seem to be any info out there about this. If anyone can point me in the right direction I'd be grateful.

I'm looking into writing a desktop application that can output its files as a mobi file to read on the kindle. When it's working I'd be glad to share it here for people to have a look at.

I don't think you'll find any info on using java code for specifically creating mobi's. But if you're willing to do a little porting from other programming languages, there are open source projects that should have more than enough reference material to get the job done:

Calibre uses Python
Mobiperl uses Perl.
