I was trying to make Protobuf message self describing and also use the fact
that in c++ we can get the instance of the exact message type from the name.

 const Descriptor* d =
DescriptorPool::generated_pool()->FindMessageTypeByName ("Message Name") ;
 Message * msg = MessageFactory::generated_factory()->GetPrototype(d)->New()
 msg->ParseFromString("Message data") ;

This seems to work for me well.

But I'm not able to find the equivalent implementation in Java. Is it
possible to do the same in Java ?
