Tested and I cannot get it to work ;-(
What I've found out by searching the web is a possible workaround that
makes use of GVFS and Fuse (this is under GNOME).
By using these two daemons one can run "gvfs-mount //server/share" and it
will recreate the full structure of the network share under "~/.gvfs/
share at server" so "java -jar" pointing to this path does not complain
and runs the file fine.
This is something like doing "mount -t cifs ..." with the advantadge that
this can be done by the user itself (no root password needed) so the
virtual mount point can be mounted only when required -on the fly-, no
need no edit "/etc/fstab" and define the static samba share on every boot.
