the GCC java compiler... it really sucks. It's String class doesn't have a split method. It has none of the Swing classes. Is GCC the only option for compiling to native code?

Try Excelsior Jet.
Marvelous, but not free. You could try the personal edition, not expired, but can't be distributed to other computer. :(

Out of interest, why do you need to compile to native code? For ease of installation? Speed?

both, and ease of distribution. people don't generally bother to keep their JRE up to date. Plus, it's easier to get people to try your stuff if it's not java.
