Use Java NIO to create file system links

Description

With Java 7 it is possible to create links in the file system in a native way by using NIO. The main advantage over the traditional way of spawning system processes is that it is way more memory-efficient: Spawning system processes always forks the parent process and thus doubles the memory usage.
