There is  a C interface, and there is a Python interface which is quite


I see the following possibilities:
1. There is a Java wrapper for GIMP, see, but this project hasn't been active for a long time. 2. A still existing way is to use the Java Native Interface (JNI), which lets you call C/C++ functions from Java and vice versa. 3. GIMP has a built-in script-fu server which interpretes GIMPs plugin language, a Scheme dialect. You could connect to it over a socket from an arbitrary language and control GIMP remotely, although it's a bit oversized if you could call GIMPs functionality directly from within your program. 4. IMHO you should be able to access C from C++ by including the C header files, but I haven't tried this for GIMP yet. 5. If you're only interested in accessing GIMPs graphics core, then you could use a wrapper around the GEGL library. A Java language binding has yet to be developed.
