Sorry, I can't. I'm holding down a full-time job plus two contracting
gigs on the side. I'd love to be able to help but I simply don't have
the capacity to do so right now :(
It might be easier for someone to write the authors an email in an
official capacity asking for permission to use their code under Java7
(the current license is LGPL) and in the same breath ask them your
question about the Sockets API Extensions for SCTP and whether they'd be
willing to work to fit this underneath your Java API.
Here are the contents of their AUTHORS file:
The main authors:
