I have to load a DLL which is bundled in a JAR. If I do not include them in a JAR, I can load the DLL with System.load(thePath). This works fine.
Now to load it from a JAR i do this:
// Get current classloader
ClassLoader cl = this.getClass().getClassLoader();

// Create path
String lsFile = new String((cl.getResource("STDCExcel.dll")).getPath());
// load DLL
The System.load gives me a unsatisfiedlinkError, the lsPath variable contains: file:/C:/JRE/1.3.1/lib/ext/office.jar!/STDCExcel.dll
The Office.jar is infact the correct JAR which contains the DLL.
What's wrong ?? thnx
