You're not. I worked on a heavy duty C++ telco
project and that's exactly what they did.
The management and visual monitoring code was
Java and connected to the embedded C++ engine via Corba.

However this kind of interfacing isn't really
that good for lower level interoperability.
For example adding new primitive operations
to a programming system still seems to 
require an FFI approach -- you don't really
expect such primitives to reach across network
layers -- more likely you'd be using them to
*define* networking layers :)
