Can somebody tell me how I can map a C structure to a Java object? What happens when there are pointers in the C structure. How do I map those?
I keep digging on the net but keep on finding those useless HelloWorld JNI examples. Is there any hopes to find a decent real world example of how to map legacy C code to java.
I wanna create a JNI binding to the a C library which is heavy with structures. I need to know how to map a Java class to a C structure.

I have found the book
"The Java Native Interface: Programmer's Guide and Specification" by Sheng Liang to be pretty useful.
It is from "The Java Series" from Sun.
ISBN# 0-201-32577-2.
Hope this helps.
