setting java objects from C++ (JNI)

I can't set a NON static member in java from a native C++ function. It works fine with STATIC.
I'm wrong or is it a bug in JNI ?

import java.io.*;

public class  SimpleFile {
        public String fd=new String("-1");

        public native boolean  set();

        static {

        static public void main(String[] args) throws IOException {
        SimpleFile f = new SimpleFile();

#include "SimpleFile.h"
JNIEXPORT jboolean JNICALL Java_SimpleFile_set
  (JNIEnv * env, jobject jobj)
        jclass jcl;
        jfieldID jfid;
        jstring jstr;

                return JNI_FALSE;

                return JNI_FALSE;


        return JNI_TRUE;

The above line should be

env->SetObjectField(obj, jfid, (object)jstr);
