Is there documentation on which commands are available? For example right now I cant even \\ to get linebreaks, however \textcolor{red}{\mathfrak{A}rea}A=\pi r^2 works perfectly...

As far as I can tell this package does not use LaTeX to render, but rather it emulates a a subset of LaTeX commands. Therefore I do not think that it's a good fit for TeX.sx. – qubyte Jan 20 '12 at 5:48
At the homepage of jLaTeXMath there is an uncomplete list. – Torbjørn T. Jan 20 '12 at 8:01
@TorbjørnT. Thanks, I was inspecting the homepage inside out, but somehow refused to interpret the welcoming page... – propaganda Jan 21 '12 at 2:47
@TorbjørnT. You could add this as an answer. As I see close votes: I think, the question is ontopic here, as JLaTeXMath works with LaTeX syntax, even if it's not really LaTeX or TeX. – Stefan Kottwitz Jan 21 '12 at 12:53
@StefanKottwitz Done. – Torbjørn T. Jan 22 '12 at 21:42

The homepage of jLaTeXMath has an uncomplete list of available commands:

The most of LaTeX commands are available and:

  1. macros from amsmath and symbols from amssymb and stmaryrd;
  2. \includegraphics (without options);
  3. the TeX macro \over;
  4. accents from amsxtra package;
  5. the macros \definecolor, \textcolor, \colorbox and \fcolorbox from the package color;
  6. the macros \rotatebox, \reflectbox and \scalebox from the package graphicx;
  7. the most of latin unicode characters are available and cyrillic or greek characters are detected for the loading of the different fonts;
  8. the commands \newcommand and \newenvironment;
  9. the environments array, matrix, pmatrix,..., eqnarray, cases;
  10. the vertical and horizontal lines are handled in array environment;
  11. the commands to change the size of the font are available : \tiny, \small,...,\LARGE, \huge, \Huge,
  12. the fonts are embedded in the jar file to be used by fop 0.95 to generate PDF, PS or EPS (SVG export with shaped fonts works fine too). Since the version 0.9.5, the fop plugin is fully compatible with fop 1.0 and xmlgraphics 1.4;
  13. and probably other things I forgot...
