    There's a reason.

    Please do some research on the source, purpose, and intended use of a .dll and the .net target architecture, and compare what you learn there to the Java "write once, run anywhere" philosophy as enabled by the Java Virtual Machine or JVM.

    This is actually somewhat possible, depending on the DLL in question, but it is a tricky process that (as pointed out upthread) gives you a strong dependency to a specific platform and specific library loader.

    The JNI specification describes how Java interfaces to native code.
