We're looking for a MacOS equivalent of a Windows Registry,
which we can access from java.  Looking for a persistent
storage "bank" which is not a file on the disk (which can
be easily erased, tampered with, etc...).  Please answer
with detailed usage examples, etc.

Sorry there will be no such a thing like a regisrty on the MAC. If you want to see the settings of the system you have to parse the system:Preferences Folder. But you can't do the same things like in Windows. Pls give more info what you want to do exactly.
