This is a GNU License JINI extension for Windows, Mac and I think Linux that you would need to access OpenGL from Java. You cannot access non-Java libraries from a Java Virtual Machine without such an interface. Note that these are in beta, but seem to work very well anyway.

The GNU site refers to JNI, Java Native Invocation. The JNI API is used to run native, non Java libraries such as OpenGL.

JINI, pronounced "genie", is an extension developed by Sun Microsystems for distributed systems. It is not for accessing OpenGL libraries.
