I need to use Java language for desktop GIS development on Linux system. I need to perform read and write operations on FGDB databases, rasters, and vectors. First, I tried to use GDAL, but GDAL is not very convenient for writing FGDB databases (the FGDB API does not have a Java version). Is there any other better solution?

    You have this tagged with ArcGIS-Desktop which isn't available on Linux. There is a Java ArcObjects, which can run on Linux ArcGIS Server platforms, and can access file geodatabase natively, but you'd be getting on the last stagecoach out of Dodge, technology-wise.
