There's a java.library.path system property which you can set from the command line -- i.e.,

java -Djava.library.path=c:\something ...

Another alternative which I believe works on Windows (I know it works on Linux) is just to use your OS's normal mechanism for finding libraries. On Windows, this just means adding the DLL's location to the PATH environment variable. On most versions of UNIX, it's the LD_LIBRARY_PATH variable you'd use.

A final possibility is to put the DLL into the JDK/jre/lib directory.
catch it before it slithers away! Oh wait, it's a tiny ad:
