Yes. Since you mentioned JRI - it gives you all of the above for free  
(there are CRAN binaries for Windows and OS X; it installs on unix  
system with Java; you can link arbitrary libraries from R - that's how  
R works). Good pointers are JavaGD (for graphics so you can embed it  
in your Java look and feel) and JGR since it does all this already.
