Hi I have a lot of dll files with description.
But I have to be coding in java.
Is there a  easy way to get  a bridge  so I can access the Dll  in java using a modern way?
Tutorials wonted badly.
I have been looking at JNA but get instantly stuck in the step learning curve :-/

Other ideas suitable for a 2017 solution's ?

JNA ... the steep learning curve


Hm, and JNA was meant to take the pain out of JNI :-)

What, specifically, are you stuck on? The JNA home page links to several example applications - have you gotten some of those to run?

There is no pain to using JNI. At least not when I try it. It is really painless. I follow the tutorial and always get unsatisfied link errors and JNI fails to run. What is painful about that?
