[Samba] encoding a ntlm-hash from cleartext passwords with java

i am writing a tiny application which generates new accounts from an
existent department's database. This is a school and i have to create
several hundred accounts per year, so i think it's worth the effort.
As i write this app in Java (I just happen to be best in Java not C or
Perl), i would like to do as much as possible in Java without invoking
external scripts. Alas i do not know how to generate the NTLM-hashes
from cleartext passwords. I didn't find a solution in the jCIFS project
- did i overlook something?
Maybe i should port the routines from Samba sources to java which should
not be too difficult (I assume there are no system dependend parts) -
any hints where to look? smbpasswd.c?
At the end i would like to have an ldap-entry with all relevant
attributes so that i do not have to invoke smbpasswd et al.
Thanks a lot for any help or comments,
(who can not attend the sambaXP this year, sadly)
