Undefined reference in JNI

Hi,I was trying to embedd some java code in C and needed to invoke the JVM.But i keep getting an error - 'undefined reference to 'JNI_CreateJavaVM''.I'm not sure what i'm doing wrong.
Here is the program and the command i use to run it.
(the following program is a sample program i took off the web,but it shows me the same error)I'd greatly appreciate it if someone could help me here.I'm almost done pulling all my hair out.
I'm programming on linux and have jdk1.2.2 installed.
I think the problem i might have is because of my and and the like,but i'm not sure exactly tho.
#include <jni.h>
#ifdef _WIN32
#define PATH_SEPARATOR ';'
#else /* UNIX */
#define PATH_SEPARATOR ':'
#define USER_CLASSPATH "." /* where Prog.class is */
main() {
JNIEnv *env;
JavaVM *jvm;
JDK1_1InitArgs vm_args;
jint res;
jclass cls;
jmethodID mid;
jstring jstr;
jobjectArray args;
char classpath[1024];

/* IMPORTANT: specify vm_args version # if you use JDK1.1.2 and beyond */
vm_args.version = 0x00010001;
/* Append USER_CLASSPATH to the end of default system class path */
sprintf(classpath, "%s%c%s",
vm_args.classpath = classpath;
/* Create the Java VM */
res = JNI_CreateJavaVM(&jvm,&env,&vm_args);
if (res < 0) {<br /> fprintf(stderr, "Can't create Java VM\n");<br /> exit(1);<br /> }<br /> cls = (*env)->FindClass(env, "Prog");
if (cls == 0) {
fprintf(stderr, "Can't find Prog class\n");

mid = (*env)->GetStaticMethodID(env, cls, "main", "([Ljava/lang/String V");
if (mid == 0) {
fprintf(stderr, "Can't find Prog.main\n");
jstr = (*env)->NewStringUTF(env, " from C!");
if (jstr == 0) {
fprintf(stderr, "Out of memory\n");
args = (*env)->NewObjectArray(env, 1,
(*env)->FindClass(env, "java/lang/String"), jstr);
if (args == 0) {
fprintf(stderr, "Out of memory\n");
(*env)->CallStaticVoidMethod(env, cls, mid, args);

gcc -I<where my jni.h is> -L<where my is>-ljava invoke.c
The java file is a simple program( which just prints something to the screen.
Anyhelp will be greatly appreciated it.

Hi everybody,like i guessed the problem was due to my not loading the shared libraries properly(,,
.I load them explicitly when i compile them and it compiles fine.But when i try to run the program it shows an error saying that it cannot load the shared libraries.Here's the screen command and output:
gcc -L/home/frankie/Java/JNI/Ex3 -ljvm
-L/home/frankie/Java/JNI/Ex3 -ljava
-L/home/frankie/Java/JNI/Ex3 -lhpi invoke.c -o invoke
now when i run invoke:
error while loading shared load shared object file:no such file or directory

Any suggestions ??I know i'm screwing up with the shared libs but where should they all be??and am i loading them right??
I agree. Here's the link:
