AFAIK, there was no money involved, but some of those that initiated the 
development are not any more involved - you can see their names in the 
associated source files. Probably Howard is the most knowledgeable on 
the overall matter from those on this list. However, he's probably not 
the best source for Java specific things. I'm not sure who is the Swig 
Java person at the moment. My knowledge is about Swig Perl.

I believe Swig provides tools for a bootstrap so you should be on your 
way, but the question is how far? Are you dealing with a specific issue 
or more general issue? Did you try the Swig list? I've asked a couple of 
questions on that some (long) time ago.
