The GRASS-JNI code is in the src.garden/grass.java subdirectory, but:

1. It's present in 5.3 (the CVS trunk), and in the 5.0.0, 5.0.1 and
5.0.2 releases, but not in 5.0.3 (a lot of unmaintained code was
removed from the CVS release branch between 5.0.2 and 5.0.3).

2. It hasn't been updated for GRASS 5.x, and so may not work in its
present form.
