Definitely not. If you want Joe Blogger to use your work, you need to 
either write a normal Drupal module that requires, at most, a database 
upgrade and possibly an external PHP library that can be copied into the 
module's directory, or you need to offer a web service that can be 
accept POST data on cron runs and return analysis.

On the other hand, a large number of Drupal power users would have no 
problem using Java libraries.
