What is native code? I heard that Java creates a native code in Run time.How do I identify it?
And also, what is the use of JNI?

JNI is the java native interface, it is the libraries and methods that java uses to interface / run with native code.
Native code is code written in other languages (such as C, C++, delphi, etc) - which are usually deemed to be native to one platform.
It can be difficult to get the hang of but is what allows the use of dlls etc on windows, or C libraries on Unix
