Hi all,
does anyone know if a version of the Java native Compiler, GCJ is available for windows yet? If so, could someone link me to the download page?

Thanks

Problem is though, at the site: http://gcc.gnu.org/java/, I select "Mirror Sites" under "Downloads", then select the UK server.. I snoop through the directories, but there are no .zip/.exe files to download. They're all LINUX files, such as .GZ, .TAR, etc..
I've got software to uncompress these formats, however; there content aren't for Windows, there's no .exes' in them.. :S

Ta.

Hi DrWarezz,

First you have to download Cygwin at http://www.cygwin.com/
Then, download gcc, gcj and all necessary packages for cygwin.

GCJ doesn't support it?  Is Webstorm correct then to say to download Cygwin, etc, for it to work..?

ThanQ everyone.

What i meant is that you can't (at least when i last looked) produce an exe file in gcj if the app is windowed
