These are great questions. Note that the Java API has changed in
regards to some of your questions in 0.8.0.

Could someone more experienced in the Java library create some JIRAs
about creating user documentation to help get started using the Java
API (if even some simple example programs to point people to)? I think
this would help adoption and growth of the user base.

Thank you,
