Android ndk : Problem for call of Java method from c++ with jni-ThrowExceptions

Exception or error:

I try to work on Android NDK, my first test are not very conclusive, I need for help because I don’t see where is my error.

The following code compiles without problem but when is running on the emulator, the program returns SIGSEGV signal and no error is explicitly written in the logcat.
however, a warning indicating that the Java class is not found appears. After a day of research on this problem, everything looks correct.

Here is my Java code: JNITestActivity.java

package com.test.jnitest;

import android.app.Activity;
import android.os.Bundle;
import android.util.Log;

public class JNITestActivity extends Activity {

    private static String LIB_NAME = "JNItest";

    static {
        System.loadLibrary(LIB_NAME);
    }

    public static native void javaCallJNI();

    @Override
    public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
        setContentView(R.layout.main);

        Log.i("onCreate", "Native function begining");
        javaCallJNI();
        Log.i("onCreate", "Native function ending");
    }

    void callFromCPP() {
        Log.i("callFromCPP", "JNI can call JAVA !");
        return ;
    }

}

Here is my C++ code: testjni.cpp

#include <jni.h>
#include <android/log.h>

#define  LOG_TAG    "testjni"
#define  LOGI(...)  __android_log_print(ANDROID_LOG_INFO,LOG_TAG,__VA_ARGS__)

extern "C" {
    JNIEXPORT void JNICALL Java_com_test_jnitest_JNITestActivity_javaCallJNI(JNIEnv* env, jobject obj);
};

jint JNI_OnLoad(JavaVM* vm, void* reserved)
{
    JNIEnv* env;
    if (vm->GetEnv((void**) &env, JNI_VERSION_1_6) != JNI_OK)
        return -1;

    LOGI("JNI INIT");

    return JNI_VERSION_1_6;
}

JNIEXPORT void JNICALL Java_com_test_jnitest_JNITestActivity_javaCallJNI(JNIEnv* env, jobject obj)
{
    LOGI("JNI work !");

    jclass clazz = env->FindClass("com/test/jnitest/JNITestActivity");
    if (clazz == 0) {
        LOGI("FindClass error");
        return;
    }
    jmethodID javamethod = env->GetMethodID(clazz, "callFromCPP", "()V");
    if (javamethod == 0) {
        LOGI("GetMethodID error");
        return;
    }
    env->CallVoidMethod(obj, javamethod);
}

And here is my Makefile: Android.mk

LOCAL_PATH:= $(call my-dir)
include $(CLEAR_VARS)

LOCAL_MODULE := libJNItest
LOCAL_LDLIBS := -L$(SYSROOT)/usr/lib -llog 

LOCAL_SRC_FILES := \
         src/testjni.cpp

include $(BUILD_SHARED_LIBRARY)
include $(CLEAR_VARS)

And the logcat error :

Thank you,

How to solve:

After one day lost due to this bug, i finally found the solution of my problem :

The function javaCallJNI() is declared as a static native in Java, but, a static method can’t call a non static method…

For resolve this problem, just replace :

public static native void javaCallJNI();

by

public native void javaCallJNI();

in JNITestActivity.java

Thank for your help and see soon 😉

###

What you have looks okay to me… but you might try replacing

jclass clazz = env->FindClass("com/test/jnitest/JNITestActivity");

With

jclass clazz = env->GetObjectClass(obj);
