Thank you for your contribution.

I have two questions:

1. Is glpk.i sufficient to use swig (assuming that the user knows
   what it is and how to use it)?

2. Build_JNI_with_VC9_DLL.bat builds one dll, which includes the
   wrapper module. However it seems to me that it is better to build
   the glpk dll separately from the wrapper dll. What do you think?
