No, we don’t have anything built in that supports this. You can write one of course using JNI although JNI unfortunately is a bit of a pain in the neck. You might be able to use JNA or another such library to make this easier (even the RoboVM project has some nice way of calling native from Java, maybe this could be use on OSX as well).
