To represent a C++ object in the Java VM, the system should allocate a proxy class appropriate to the object being wrapped. E.g. instances of nsIWebShell should be proxied by some object implementing the Java nsIWebShell interface. This requires classes mirroring each XPCOM interface, generated on-the-fly or statically, that forward arguments to the C++ instance. Mapping an interface to the appropriate class may only require a name-based lookup. (E.g. the proxy class for [interface] is always org.mozilla.xpcom.[interface]__Proxy.)
