[Biojava-l] SVM question

I am interested in using a support vector machine accessible thru a Java API, I was told that BioJava has a very good implementation very similar to SVMlight. Looking at the BioJava API I realize that there is the package org.biojava.stats.svm with  SMOTrainer, SMORegressionTrainer and SVMRegressioModel classes and a package org.biojava.stats.svm.tools with SVM_light and Train classes, to learn a SVM for classification which one should be used? and for regression? is there any example or documentation on this? 
Is the SVM_light an implementation of Joaquim's SVMlight?

Many thanks
