I'm a php-java-bridge user, in windows environment and the performance
penalty is very relevant for our needs and so, i've alocated some time
(without priority mind) to build the module into a windows dll.
I'm trying (time allow) to "understand" the windows build requirements
(not an easy task with all the obscure "Zend" stuff around) for it and
build an Ant/Nant file to build it easier.
I've had some success in some of the building steps, but it is still a
work very much in the process.
I know it won't be much, but this is the help i can provide...
