First entry. Great.

I feel that Java/SWT under Eclipse is a slick way to develop apps. But being able to share those apps with people without the hassles of JVM installation and kludgy integration would be great.

Here enters native compilation. As a testbed, I'd like to compile a small SWT example demonstrating some nice native features (tray icons and tooltips) under Windows.

For this test to be useful, it should be performed using open-source tools and a modern java environment version (1.4.2 at least, preferably 5.0 or whatever it's called today).

Some documentation exists, but I'd like to write some more up-to-date, no-fuss instructions.
