And let me add that you *really* want to run in separate address spaces. From the experience with JNI (Java Native Interface), many people will tell you that it is actually a very bad idea to run native (un-typesafe, explicitly-memory-allocation-requiring, using-a-different-threading-model, ...) code in the same address space as you VM runs in and even let it mess around with data which should be internal to the VM because you literally have zillion exciting ways to crash your VM.

Cheers, 

Jan.
