JNI Problem - GetStringChars giving core dump after few repititve operation

jstring str;
char *value;

value = (char *) (*env)->GetStringUTFChars( env,str,NULL);
(*env)->ReleaseStringUTFChars(env,str,value);

Above piece of code gets executed for each field of an Java object. It gives a core dump after executing successfully for some field at one specefic point.

Re-arranging the position of the field also gives the error after certain number of execution.

I don't do anything with the value as well, just retrieve it and then release it. It still gives an error.


Any pointer?????????????

Simply assigning finalValue to value just gives you two pointers to the SAME block of memory. Then in the next line you release this block of memory so finalValue is no longer pointing to a valid block of memory.

You need to either delay releasing the block until you no longer need it, or take a copy of the block.
