rolling ball system

I'd like to simulate a rolling ball system on a website. By rolling ball systems I mean things like:
   http://g42.org/tiki/tiki-index.php?page=RollingBallSystems&PHPSESSID=e382fb8cad9719ac232c61ea185d49a9

I assume that flash or a java applet would be the way to do this. The main issue with this is that balls need to run along tracks, fly through the air, then land, go through spirals, etc. This would look best if it was 3D, but I don't want to spend a huge amount of time on this, so 2D would be fine.

Is there a physics engine I could use which would allow me to do this fairly easily in either java or flash?

I've tried that out and it seems promising, but since it's not pure java, it's not much use for making an applet. I'm also getting irritated by getting EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION errors while using it.

Are there any pure java physics engines?

never seen balls in 2D, especially flying ... ;-)

guess firstable you need to specify clearer to you, what it is going to be ... good luck :)
