I am writing a native method (from java to C).  
Actual C Code:-
	JNIEXPORT jstring JNICALL Java_ClassName_pspLoadFiles(JNIEnv *env, jobject obj, jstring ursapath, jstring editpath){
	
	const char * cursapath = (*env)->GetStringUTFChars(env, ursapath, NULL);
	const char * ceditpath = (*env)->GetStringUTFChars(env, editpath, NULL);
	const char * cresult = (const char *) (uvsdkLoadFiles(cursapath, ceditpath));
//cresult does show value on console
	printf("\n   status %s\n", cresult);

	jstring jresult = (*env)->NewStringUTF(env, cresult);
	printf("\n   does not print On Console %s\n", (*env)->NewStringUTF(env, cresult));
	(*env)->ReleaseStringUTFChars(env, ursapath, cursapath);
	(*env)->ReleaseStringUTFChars(env, editpath, ceditpath);
        printf("\n   jresult %s\n", jresult); // does not print on console
	return jresult;	//valid values of jresult is returned back to Java
}

Code in Header File
JNIEXPORT jstring JNICALL Java_ClassName_pspLoadFiles
  (JNIEnv *, jobject, jstring, jstring);

This line does not print values on console:-
(*env)->NewStringUTF(env, cresult);

Environment is AIX64 bit and Java 5.

That sounds about right. The result of that function call is of type "jstring" (not a pointer to character data) and so it makes sense that you can't just print it to the console as a normal c string. You should be able to use the GetStringUTFChars function call like you are already using for other jstring's to convert it to a c string to print to the console, ie...
	JNIEXPORT jstring JNICALL Java_ClassName_pspLoadFiles(JNIEnv *env, jobject obj, jstring ursapath, jstring editpath){
	
	const char * cursapath = (*env)->GetStringUTFChars(env, ursapath, NULL);
	const char * ceditpath = (*env)->GetStringUTFChars(env, editpath, NULL);
	const char * cresult = (const char *) (uvsdkLoadFiles(cursapath, ceditpath));
//cresult does show value on console
	printf("\n   status %s\n", cresult);

	jstring jresult = (*env)->NewStringUTF(env, cresult);
	const char * c_jresult = (*env)->GetStringUTFChars(env, jresult, NULL);
	printf("\n   SHOULD print on Console %s\n", c_jresult);
	(*env)->ReleaseStringUTFChars(env, jresult, c_jresult);
	(*env)->ReleaseStringUTFChars(env, ursapath, cursapath);
	(*env)->ReleaseStringUTFChars(env, editpath, ceditpath);
        //printf("\n   jresult %s\n", jresult); // does not print on console
	return jresult;	//valid values of jresult is returned back to Java
}
