How to Call Java Functions from C Using JNI

, 13 Jan 2008 CPOL
This article covers calling Java functions from C using JNI. It also covers passing/returning simple parameters, arrays, and structure arrays in Java functions.
public class HelloWorld 
      public static void main(String args[]) 
         System.out.println("Hello World!");
         System.out.println("This is the main function in HelloWorld class");
      public static void TestCall(String szArg)
      public static int DisplayStruct(ControlDetail ctrlDetail)
      	System.out.println("Structure is:\n-------------------------");
      	System.out.println("Name:" + ctrlDetail.Name);
      	System.out.println("IP:" + ctrlDetail.IP);
      	System.out.println("Port" + ctrlDetail.Port);
      	return 1;     	
      public static void DisplayStructArray(WorkOrder ArrWO[])
      	System.out.println("WorkOrders are Given hereunder:\n----------------------------");
      	for(int i = 0; i< ArrWO.length;i++)
      		System.out.println("<---Work Order Number:" + String.valueOf(i+1) + "<---");
      		System.out.println("Sum_Serial_ID: " + ArrWO[i].sumSerialId);
      		System.out.println("Access_Number: " + ArrWO[i].accessNumber);
      		System.out.println("Action_Type: " + ArrWO[i].actionType);
      		System.out.println("Effective_Date: " + ArrWO[i].effectiveDate);
      		System.out.println("Fetch_Flag: " + ArrWO[i].fetchFlag);
      		System.out.println("Reason: " + ArrWO[i].reason);
      		System.out.println("Access_Source: " + ArrWO[i].accessSource);
      public static Object ReturnObjFunc()
      	System.out.println("Going to return an object from java");
      	ReturnData RetData = new ReturnData(1,"Successfull function call");
      	return RetData;
