Comment #3 on issue 263 by mika.rae...@gmail.com: Proto parser for Java
I think discouraging dynamic libs mainly reflect's the way google thinks
about building and deployment, I don't think there's anything that makes
protobufs particularly ill-suited for dynamic libraries (you need to deal
with paths and versions).
Native code obviously is useful mostly when you are deploying for a small
number of platforms. And doesn't help on AppEngine or other pure-Java
environments. But just providing the SWIG wrapper might cover quite a few
use cases with minimal pain.
