I'm all good with the python binding. Now I'm trying to figure out what
to do with Java (JNI and native), and soon with perl, php and ruby.

For Java JNI I can use the Data object the same way I did in python, but
Java native is a different story. In the jython test, all the codec test
functions just throw unsupported-operation in the proton-j profile.

proton_tests.codec.DataTest.testBinary .................................. skip

So I'm not sure how/if I can express AMQP types in proton-j.
