When ever i try to execute the Java Program which uses native methods the cursor keeps blinking in the command line and there's no output and finally i would have to use the Task manager to end the process. The below is the java class which i am using. I have also added the Native DLLs to the PATH environment variable. I have seen thru the books on JNI and have followed all the steps but i am stuck at this problem. Also the text "Hello World From java" is not printed. I think there's some problem with the loading of the DLL.
