That's exactly what I'm doing. It somehow lokks like the following:

Create the needed glyphs:

FontRenderContext frc = new FontRenderContext(null, true, true);
int stringLength = CIDstring.length();
int[] codePoints = new int[stringLength];
for (int i=0;i<stringLength;i++)
    codePoints[i] = CIDstring.codePointAt(i);
GlyphVector glyphs = awtFont.createGlyphVector(frc, codePoints);


Draw the glyphs:

g2d.drawGlyphVector(glyphs, x, y);

Thanks for the offer, I'm already on that, I just have to clean up the code and 
to run some tests to avoid unwanted side effects.
Once my code is available you might want to doublecheck it.
