Greetings GDAL devs,
I am interested in developing a GDAL driver that calls out to a Java
library that accesses a database that we are developing using SWIG's
Java Bindings. Are there any examples of existing GDAL drivers using
the SWIG bindings? If not, how might I use the SWIG library from a new
I've noticed there are 2 usages of Java from a GDAL driver. Frank
pointed out to me (ogr/ogrsf_frmts/ili) and mdb (ogr/ogrsf_frmts/mdb).
Both of these driver's use JNI. The reason I want to use SWIG is to
avoid having to deal with the added configuration of JNI (since SWIG
handles that already).
