The JCC build process is so much simpler than the GCJ build process.
But of course everything is hard (for developers) on Windows.
Re-writing in Java is an interesting option. Last week I took an
indexing program I had in Java, and re-wrote it for JCC PyLucene. It
shrunk to 1/6 the size of the Java version. I also ported a search
program I'd written in GCJ PyLucene to JCC PyLucene. It took two
days, but mainly that was poking at a bug in JCC (which got fixed
between the time I went to bed and the time I got up again in the
morning :-). The code transferred over without any significant
