Hello everyone,


Are there any approaches to invoke Java libraries from C/C++?


Thanks in advance,
George

Yes; do a google search for JNI (Java Native Interface). It allows Java to call C/C++ code, and (for your purposes) it allows C/C++ code to call Java.

I only know we can use JNI to invoke native libraries from Java and I have never used JNI to invoke Java libraries from native applications (C/C++ programs). I am going to look through JNI as you recommended.

Another question, do you know how JNI is implemented internally by JVM?


regards,
George
