in reply to reading perl objects with java

It would seem that your options are (1) parse the Perl object from Java, or (2) write out the object from Perl in some pre-digested form which is easier to read from Java.

(1) is said to be impossible in the general case (Perl Cannot Be Parsed: A Formal Proof), although might be doable for some suitable subset of Perl. (2) seems like the easier option, though.
