Can I give a MIDI sequencer a new sequence *while* it's playing?

P: n/a
I'm trying to learn about Java MIDI programming. Specifically, I'm
interested in playing with Java MIDI sequencers (all puns intended).
I'm looking at java.sun.com/j2se/1.4.2/docs/guide/sound/programmer_guide
for most of my information.

Is it possible to give the sequencer near future input notes to play
*while* the sequencer is already playing a previous sequence. I'm
thinking about sort of an interactive sequencer where the sequence of
notes to be played is determined mostly on the fly, but given to the
sequencer just before the notes are to be played.

Or maybe I'm just talking about setting up my own interactive sequencer.
(which sounds scarier).

Or I should just play notes directly using the
javax.sound.midi.Receiver.send interface method with a "long" timeStamp?

Advice and/or examples would be appreciated.
