JNI socket connection to C++ server
Posted on 2006-11-03
I need to create a Java program that connect to a server via socket. The server is written in C++, and I have an API.lib and a header file to work with. The API.lib provides me a function void connect () to establish a socket connection. It is easy to build a C++ client using that function.
My question is: Can I create a Java client that connect dicrectly to C++ server using that function? (via JNI)
Does the socket connection is made if I using JNI call the C++ function connect ()? (I will have a JNI style C++ function wrap around that function, off course).
Thanks in advance
