Loading DLL Library in Java, JNI - UnsatisfiedLinkError

Posted on 2009-07-16
Last Modified: 2012-05-07

I am trying to load a dll file in Java. The dll file was created using the C and Header files using MinGW GNU.
The header file was generated using javah command. And, the C has JNI Export definitions corresponding to the functions definitions in the header file.
When trying to call a function in java, there is an "UnsatisfiedLinkError".
I've tried also doing static linking when generating the DLL file but did not help.
