This DXF driver is a part of the OGR library which comes with the GDAL
To use it you have to import the whole OGR library. When you create code for
import/export of data from a different format using OGR, it can
import/export from all the formats supported by OGR [1].

OpenJUMP doesn't use GDAL. However, a plugin to use GDAL/OGR for
import/export of data could be very helpful. GDAL/OGR has java interface

First, checkout the ogr utilities [3].
