Octomap + Rosjava?

First of all, sorry if the question is a foolishness. I am going to substitute Player (which I use with PlayerClient) by ROS (which I ment to use with Rosjava).

In the current implementation I use a custom-defined map type, but I need to change it by Octomap. I know that there is a Octomap plugin to use with ROS, but I need to know if it is possible to recover the map using Rosjava and obtain information about it.

Thank you in advance.

You can receive the octomap message with rosjava and interpret the information yourself. However the octomap library itself that makes this usable is written in C++.

AFAIK there are no java bindings.

Thank you. I have implemented a basic java binding for the main functionalities of Octomap, so I hope integrate to integrate Octomap in my planner.

If you are happy with the bindings, these would be nice to package in the core rosjava repos - perhaps rosjava_extras.
