JNI Netbeans and Cygwin Compile problem

188 100+
Hi All,

Am working on a Java application in which I have to use the JNI to Interface with some native code for both windows and unix. Am using netbeans IDE with the C/C++ pack installed. Am also using Cygwin as my compiler (gcc), this is ostensibly because I hope this compiler will also compile the unix native libraries since I don't have a Linux installation. (I am working on a personal project from the office and can't get linux installed).

First question will it be possible to get native linux libs from Cygwin?

I tried doing a small test using the windows function FindWindow() and I am not able to build it. gcc complains about the jlong type defined by the JNI headers.

Here is the code followed by the netbeans output.

Help is greatly appreciated.

Seems I figured it out somehow.
In netbeans I was pointing the include path for the JNI headers to where my JDK windows installer had installed them. i.e ..Program files\\java..... I found out though that cygwin comes with it's own java compiler (or is it just headers??) and netbeans knows where to find them. So I removed my include from the nebeans settings and voila!!

Din't get to figure out what was really happening. Perherps someone can tell us.
Now, I kind of want to build a native library (.so) but when I trie it, the linker doesn't seem to find some references. Example I keep getting..

undefined reference to `_dlopen'
undefined reference to `___getreent'
undefined reference to `_dlerror'
undefined reference to `___getreent'
In function `getAwtLockFunctions':

and so on for very many functions.

Even if I put the directory with these .a files explicitly in the link properties in netbeans, I still get the same errors.

I'm having the same undefined reference problem. How did you solve it ?

Any help highly appreciated
