I don't think there is any way other than explicit information exchange to
find the name of a Jinterface Mbox.

If you are starting the Java Node from within Erlang, then you could simply
pass in the name for your Mbox and use it.

Another way would be for the Java Node code to explicitly register the Mbox
name using RPC (
to whatever registration mechanism you're using on the Erlang side.
