It's easy enough once you can lure the Dutch into attacking you. Dig in bonuses are quite a bit higher in APD. Just finished that game in 3rd place with the Philippines under my belt. The trick is tons of dreadnoughts and State Capitalism or Planned Economy to boost your industry with your spice money. Malaysia might be able to get enough Capitalists, though, since it's small enough. I would still recommend acquiring all of Sumatra and Java, regardless of your plans otherwise. Their spectacular population is the only way you can get an army large enough to fend off the British Empire.
Thats interesting indeed. I never considered to lure someone into starting a war on me, it looks like a very promising approach overall.
