MATLAB's Rich Java Interoperation

Last night I wanted to figure out how to get rid of the “Start Menu” on the bottom of the IDE and found a solution here. That got me digging into the docs about Java integration. Wow; it just works and seems to work really well. The interop is seamless. For the little coding I did to play around with loading files (it is built in but I was still curious to know) it was really easy to use. Awesome.
