I'm trying to call the method StringBuffer append(String) in the JNI native method, but I couldn't retrieve the append(String)'s method, what's wrong with my code below :

mID= pEnv->GetMethodID(sbcls,"append","(Ljava/lang/String;)Ljava/lang/StringBuffer");

(sbcls is the StringBuffer's class id)
I could use the above pEnv,sbcls to retrieve the void setLength(int)'s methods ID, but it just don't work on StringBuffer append(String), why ? help please!!

Hi eugeneng,

jclass  sbcls =     pEnv->FindClass("class name");

if(sbcls == NULL)
     printf("FindClass fail");
jstring jmsgIn = pEnv->NewStringUTF("abc");

pEnv->GetMethodID(sbcls, "append", "(Ljava/lang/String;)V"),


make sure append method is'nt static method.

best regard!

this doesn't work, because "append(String)" return StringBuffer, you won't be able to retrieve method ID of "void append(String)" because this function doesn't exist, to prove that, I tried your code, it failed.

Dude you missed one ; at the end of the return type.
It should be "Ljava/land/StringBuffer;"
This works on my NT :

   jclass strbuf;
   strbuf = (*env)->FindClass(env, "java/lang/StringBuffer");
   if(NULL == strbuf)
      MessageBox(NULL, "Cannot find class", "Error", MB_OK);
   else {
      jmethodID append = (*env)->GetMethodID(env, strbuf, "append", "(Ljava/lang/String;)Ljava/lang/StringBuffer;");
      if(NULL == strbuf)
         MessageBox(NULL, "Cannot find method", "Error", MB_OK);
         MessageBox(NULL, "OK", "Ok", MB_OK);
