Use the flags argument.  By passing '0' (aka VIR_DOMAIN_AFFECT_CURRENT
in the C API counterpart), you are explicitly requesting that only the
current configuration be modified (for a running domain, that means you
are doing a one-time hotplug, but not to remember it for the next boot).
 If you want to simultaneously hotplug _and_ affect the next boot, you
need to instead pass whatever the Java binding is for the underlying
(sorry, I don't know the Java binding well enough to know what that
binding is).
