JAPI license allows it. In fact, it is one of the most liberal licenses I saw. It says:
is free software.
You can use under the
conditions of the licence
GNU Lesser General Public License
In short this means that you can use
free of charge and you can also embed it into
proprietary, non-free software.
Could you tell me what should I do to make my version and examples available?

No, the author does not provide an email. In fact, I am not sure whether my implementation is idiomatic. Therefore, I would prefer to use the patches of the original author.

I don't know anything about this particular library, but this happens.
Now that we have Cabal and Hackage making tons of libraries easily
available, what's still missing is a good way of ranking equivalent
libraries by completeness and usefulness.

Did you try to identify and email the original author?

If nothing else, perhaps you would make your modifications available?
That way, the next JAPI user will have less trouble than you did.
(Assming the license allows it, of course.)
If I haven't seen further, it is by standing in the footprints of giants
