JNI: How to introspect an inner class

In a C JNI function, I need to construct an instance of an inner class. My problem occurs when I try to get the method ID for the constructor.
The class I want to construct in C is called Wrapper, and it looks like this;
public class Maths {
static { System.loadLibrary("Maths"); }
// Native method
public native void nativeM(Wrapper data );
public class Wrapper {
public Wrapper(){};
// Attributes used by the native method
// go here
}
}
If I call GetMethodID() as follows I get an exception saying "no such method".
jmethodID mid = (*env)->GetMethodID (env,
mathsClass,
"<init>",
"()V");
I suppose it must be something to do with the quiky way that inner classes need to be constructed, but can't find anyhting on the Internet about it.

Thanks,
Guy.

I distinctly remember reading somewhere that this was not in any way supported through JNI -- but I can't remember distinctly where I read it. I'll go digging, see if I can find the reference.
Long story short, though, I'm pretty sure you're barking up the wrong tree.
