A colleague was looking into IMEs, here's an excerpt from her note. Hope it
helps at least a little...

"There are several IME available. Global IME from MS would not help you
since it can not be acivated for java VM. List of a few examples are:
     Richwin (
     AsiaSuite by Unionway (
     WinMass by Star+Globe (

"If you are interested in inputting only Japanese you can use KanjiKit
( . It is less than $100. I installed their trial
version and now I can input Japanese in java text fields as well as 97
office applications.
