I want to build a simple JNI Application that calls a C funtion. But the thing is that i dont know how to create DLL for the C program.
I dont want to use Visual C++ for creating the DLL
How can create DLL for that C function using Turboc or in one of the compilers used in Linux

go to your linux dist type:
<code>man gcc</code>
If my memory serves, an -s switch is used to create a dll (actually they're called .so under linux)
Once you done this you'll meed to read about something called LDCONFIG (man ldconfig) that is the mechanism used by Linux to register dynamic librarys.
I learned everything I needed to know from the man pages, only I can't remember the details as it was a while ago
I agree. Here's the link:
