I gone thru the tutorial (native1.1) but I stuck at step 5 (creating a shared library). I get the following error

HelloWorld.h(2) : fatal error C1083:Cannot open include file: 'jni.h': No such file or directory.

after I run this command from dos
cl -Ic:\java\include -Ic:\java\include\win32 -LD HelloWorldImp.c -Fehello.dll

I almost there, please help me to complete this tutorial.

where is your jdk installed?
It should contain jni.h (you may have to select it when installing)
