    Hello Guy's
    This Blog will guide how to create DLL file from java using JNI.
    Please follow the below instructions.
    First create a java file that contains the native method and it loads the DLL file.
    Create and put below code :

    public class TestDLL
    private native String getMsg(); // native method
    System.loadLibrary(TestDLL); // load dll file
    public static void main(String ars[])
    System.out.println(new TestDLL.getMsg()); // Access the method of dll file

    Compile java file:


    Create an c header file using javah as follows:

    Javah jni TestDLL

    That c header file looks like

    /* DO NOT EDIT THIS FILE  it is machine generated */
    #include <jni.h>
    /* Header for class TestDLL */
    #ifndef _Included_TestDLL
    #define _Included_TestDLL
    #ifdef __cplusplus
    extern C {
    *Class: TestDLL
    *Method: getMsg
    *Signature: ()Ljava/lang/String;
    JNIEXPORT jstring JNICALL Java_TestDLL_getMsg
    (JNIEnv *,jobject);
    #ifdef cplusplus

    After that create a c++ file that defines the native method which is declared in java file, and after creating c header file it will show in that header file as follows :

    JNIEXPORT jstring JNICALL Java_TestDLL_getMsg
    (JNIEnv *, jobject)

    Note: for creating c++ file Dev C++ tool is best for me and for you also.
    The c++ file is :

    #include TestDLL.h
    JNIEXPORT jstring JNICALL Java_TestDLL_getMsg
    (JNIEnv *env,jobject obj)
    return env->NewStringUTF(Welcome to;

    After creating c++ file create a project in dev c++ :
    1. New Project ->DLL
    2. Enter project Name TestDLL and checked on C++ Project.
    3. Click on OK Button.

    After that close the default open files without saving them.
    Add C header file and C++ file to the project.
    Right click on project and go to project option
    1. Project Option -> Directories -> Include Directories
    2. Add both java directories path


    3. Click on OK button.
    Go to Execute menu and click on Rebuild All or press Ctrl+F11
    It creates the dll file after that when we run the code via below command, we got output .

    java TestDLL
