Use the releveant GetXXXField() method depending on the type of the field.

heres an example:

#include <stdio.h>
#include <jni.h>
#include "FieldAccess.h"

JNIEXPORT void JNICALL
Java_FieldAccess_accessFields(JNIEnv *env, jobject obj)
{
  jclass cls = (*env)->GetObjectClass(env, obj);
  jfieldID fid;
  jstring jstr;
  const char *str;
  jint si;

  printf("In C:\n");

  fid = (*env)->GetStaticFieldID(env, cls, "si", "I");
  if (fid == 0) {
    return;
  }
  si = (*env)->GetStaticIntField(env, cls, fid);
  printf("  FieldAccess.si = %d\n", si);
  (*env)->SetStaticIntField(env, cls, fid, 200);
 
  fid = (*env)->GetFieldID(env, cls, "s", "Ljava/lang/String;");
  if (fid == 0) {
    return;
  }
  jstr = (*env)->GetObjectField(env, obj, fid);
  str = (*env)->GetStringUTFChars(env, jstr, 0);
  printf("  c.s = \"%s\"\n", str);
  (*env)->ReleaseStringUTFChars(env, jstr, str);

  jstr = (*env)->NewStringUTF(env, "123");
  (*env)->SetObjectField(env, obj, fid, jstr);
}

This apply for arguments too? That Is, given a method identifier, how I can obtain the values of its arguments?

Arguments are passed when a method is called. A method alone does not have argument values.

Then, the only thing that I can do is to define native methods in my source code and to pass the arguments that I need. That's right?

I apologize widely by the incident. My doubt extended and was
clarified quickly. My error was not to raise another new question or to distribute the points.

It's still possible to do that by posting a 0-point question to CS ;-)
