If you would like to embed Vim inside your Java application I found, that best way how to do it, is Java terminal emulation. Download jta26.jar from Then start Vim from your Java program and redirect stdin and stdout to and from terminal emulator.

For some unknown reason you have to use Vim without GUI support, that is, GUI support isn't compiled into binary. You have to use pure terminal Vim.
