ZeroMQ using Java

Still have in my mind using ZeroMQ as Transport-Layer for my thrift-based communication between Server and Server and Server and Client. Therefore I took a deep look into JZMQ which is the JAVA-JNI Mapping for ZeroMQ. At the beginning I thought that Curve based encryptions wasn't built in yet, but it was only Certificate based authentification that wasn't implemented,yet. And even though I actually don't need to use it, I gave it a try to port it to Java.

This resulted in another pullrequest , let's see if that will be accepted, as this is something else than the former examples that I fixed for czmq. (EDIT: Just saw that travis is complaining about the jUnit-tests I wrote. One seems to keep blocking on OpenJDK6! Argh )

Using this I could port all security examples to java. Here as example the last certificate based authentication:

package org.tt.zmq.security;

import java.nio.charset.Charset;

import org.zeromq.ZAuth;
import org.zeromq.ZCert;
import org.zeromq.ZContext;
import org.zeromq.ZMQ;

//The Ironhouse Pattern
//Security doesn't get any stronger than this. An attacker is going to
//have to break into your systems to see data before/after encryption.
public class Ironhouse {

	private static final String CERTIFICATE_FOLDER=".curve";
	public static void main(String[] args) {
	    //  Create context
		ZContext ctx = new ZContext();
	    //  Start an authentication engine for this context. This engine
	    //  allows or denies incoming connections (talking to the libzmq
	    //  core over a protocol called ZAP).
		ZAuth auth = new ZAuth(ctx);
	    //  Get some indication of what the authenticator is deciding
	    //  Whitelist our address; any other address will be rejected
	    //  Tell authenticator to use the certificate store in .curve

	    //  We'll generate a new client certificate and save the public part
	    //  in the certificate store (in practice this would be done by hand
	    //  or some out-of-band process).
	    ZCert client_cert = new ZCert();
	    client_cert.setMeta("name", "Client test certificate");
	    ZCert server_cert = new ZCert();
	    //  Create and bind server socket
	    ZMQ.Socket server = ctx.createSocket(ZMQ.PUSH);
	    //  Create and connect client socket
	    ZMQ.Socket client = ctx.createSocket(ZMQ.PULL);
	    //  Send a single message from server to client
	    String message = client.recvStr(0,Charset.defaultCharset());
	    if (message.equals("Hello")) {
	    	System.out.println("Ironhouse test OK");
