We have to take a call on a pure java vs native implementation using JNI.
Since i have not worked on JNI ,I had a elementary question.
It is said that JNI has potential security risk ,and bypasses java security sand-box.
Can someone explain the security risks of JNI - apart from the normal risks from native programming like buffer overrun etc.
Pointers to relevant articles will also suffice
