JNIWrapper is a software development kit enabling you to work with native code from Java programs without using JNI. With JNIWrapper, you don't need to create native libraries to call a function of the operating system API or a function from any dynamic library. You write code in the Java language only, and JNIWrapper does the rest. Whether it’s Windows, Linux or Mac OS X, you can exploit the power of JNIWrapper on any of these platforms. JNIWrapper Advantages JNIWrapper has a number of technical advantages, the most noteworthy of which are: * Minimum behind-the-scenes operation. Developers should always be able to see and understand what is happening when they work with the native-side data. This helps both to develop and debug complex interactions between the Java and native code. * High performance. JNIWrapper has been specially tuned for performance, particularly in cases where large amounts of data are involved in interactions. * Automatic resource management. o All resources allocated by JNIWrapper components are released automatically when no longer needed. Developers can treat JNIWrapper variables as usual objects that can be picked up by the Java garbage collector. o JNIWrapper objects are also safe with regard to finalizers: all resources are guaranteed to be available during finalization. * Comprehensive support for native function invocation. JNIWrapper supports both stdcall and cdecl calling conventions and all complex C types, including structures and unions. Callbacks are fully supported with any parameter and return types and both calling conventions. For unexpected cases, users can create their own types taking the full control over parameter behavior.
