You could you partition the volume by Delaunay tetrahedron (help DelaunayTri). Over each tetrahedron Tj, approximate the integral by:

Ij = |Tj|/4 sum(i) dot(J1,J2)(xi)

where {xi}={x1,x2,x3,x4} are four corners of Tj. and |Tj| is the volume

|Tj| = 1/6*abs(det [x2-x1 x3-x2 x4-x2 ]).

Then sum Ij for all j to get the integral on the whole volume.
