[OSGeo-Discuss] GDAL and Java on Windows (and FileGDB too)

Hi all,
I'm currently trying to setup some instructions to use GeoServer with the
GDAL/OGR store. Linux wise, I have had no particular problems,
but I'm falling a bit short on the Windows side.

I've looked around, tried many solutions and installers, but it seems the
only package providing prebuilt GDAL binaries with Java support
The GDAL core installer (MSI) does not seem to come with Java support
instead. Nor does OSGeo4w, as far I can tell.

So in the end I have a working solution, but not sure how much Windows
users will be amenable to use a random zip instead of
an installer, and I'm trying to get the installation steps for the OGR
store as smooth as possible.

Also, I was hoping to test out the FileGDB driver [1], which is pre-built
and included in the zip above, but with little success.
I have downloaded the ESRI binary SDK (the 1.3 one, pointed by the GDAL
format description page),
put the libs in the path, moved the FileDGB driver from plugins-external to
but nope, trying to use it will just segfault any app instantly (even just
ogrinfo). Maybe I'm just missing some step here?


[1] the OpenFileGBD I'm already using and working fine for small files, but
very slow for large ones due to lack of on-disk
     spatial index support, that's why I also wanted to try out the FileGDB
