Which version?
It needs 1.3.xx, where xx is the latest available.

In any case, if you have the latest, you need to file bug reports with the
swig guys.

They wouldn't.
They are used for python to do things like passing pointers that are
really return values (IE filled in by the called function).
For Java, you might need typemaps for this, or other things.
If there is nothing special that you need to do (i never read the swig
java docs, so i don't know if there are different argument types you need
to be using), just add java to the list of languages in the typemap.

Untrue that he is responsible for *all* of the swig code.
I also understand swig enough to answer his questions.
