We do not have a java version of io_lib here, but someone involved with the
NCBI trace archive (Harley Gorrell I think) was working on a java trace viewer 
to handle ZTR.

ZTR ought to be doable in java as I deliberately made use of zlib for
compression, which has been ported to quite a few languages already. (I'd be
suprised if it's not in Java.)
