(R)SJava is part of the Omegahat project, not the R project. In theory at least, Omegahat has its own mailing lists.

In any case, the R posting guide asks you to contact the maintainer of a contributed package before this list, so please do so now.

There are easier-to-setup alternatives to using R from Java: see for example (some of which software is on CRAN). (From your description Rserve may suffice: an alternative would be to use DCOM.)
