and its 'step by step' guide doesn't have enough steps. It just says compile the jar and create a dll. I've tried running the jar in Eclipse but haven't been able to create a .dll file which it says is required for the next step.
After you build it, continue with the rest of the steps.
EDIT: actually it looks like you can skip some of the steps if you download this: http://anastasiosyal.com/code/TextFunctions.zip - it has the SimMetrics.dll built in it already, and has SQL scripts to import the dll and create the CLR functions giving you access to the apis.
Working fine for me! you guys rock! Questions: Anybody had use the CompareStringMetrics function or child functions to group duplicates using big data sets? Any performance issues? I am going to start that exercise in a few minutes.
