Hi,
I ve got a general question:
If I write a piece of functionality in c++ and make it provided to my java classes via JNI, what is the impact of this crossing on the portability of my java apllication , will it work on linux supposed that the c++ dlls compiled on windows xp or vice versa or not? how to solve this kind of non-portability due to JNI in case there is any?

thanks

may not work. so and dll are different. You need to recompile it on windows, linux

a. Use pure java
b. Use #ifdef WIN32...

Portability is limited. You can try recompiling under each platform - depends on what you're doing

depends on the portability of your C+ code. You solve it by making your native code portable.

Hi All,
Thanks for your invaluable contributions. actually I need to get the creation date of a list of files, java supports only getting file modification date, which does not suffice in my case, since my main application is written in java I would need a way to walk around this, is there alternative to c++ that migh work on other operating systems, at least the linux flavours ?

do I need to ask this in another thread or does suffice only to increase the points here?

Well different OSs treat file times in different ways too, so there again you would need to be in one #ifdef or other

you're best asking in a different TA, as its not really a Java question.
