Moazzam, a couple of notes:

 1. Please upload your code to a website somewhere and provide a link
    so that others would be able to partake in your work.
 2. I'm assuming your code is under (L)GPL license.
 3. We've had a similar conversation (about PHP I think) with someone
    else a bit back with regards to using the actual library and creating
    a Java wrapper around the installed C-library.  I do see value, though,
    in having a native Java port for such platforms as windows, etc which
    might not have the ITL library installed (or might not be able to
    install it even).

As long as everything is under GPL, sure.  Again, do please upload to a
website somewhere (there are plenty of free sites one can upload to) and
provide a URL.  I'm also CC'ing our "developer" list to get others to
know about this work so in the future do please mail all your correspondence
to that mailing-list.

The main issue we continue to face is our intent to create a "library"
which should have curtailed the need to proliferate the porting of the
code to various languages (think about when a bug is fixed or a new
feature added then you have 5 other ports to go deal with) - I'm not
sure how best to deal with this though.

Thamer, any thoughts/ideas ?
