I would like to rephrase the question: is it possible to use OCaml code (plus 
possibly some C code) for generating dynamically linked libraries that are 
used as easily as c(++) from c(++)? I've got the impression that this is the 
case. At least page 218 of the docs (chapter 17.7. at the end) suggests so. 

As I am currently deciding if I want to start a project in OCaml that possibly 
could become a library that would have to be used from C or JAVA, I would be 
very interested in the OCaml-Gurus' comment on that. 

Cheers,
Wolfgang
