c – Taglib for Android-ThrowExceptions

Exception or error:

I am trying to compile Taglib for Android. I have downloaded the latest version for
Taglib from here . After compiling it for arm-linux build I have successfully imported it in my application, but when I try to call any function from tag_c.h I am getting following error:

SharedLibrary  : taglibwav.so
/home/test/workspacenew/Androidtaglibexample/obj/local/armeabi/
objs/squared/taglibwav.o: In function 
`Java_com_android_androidtag_WavFileDetails_taglibwav':
/home/test/workspacenew/Androidtaglibexample/jni/taglibwav.c:30: 
undefined reference to `taglib_set_strings_unicode'
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make: *** [/home/test/workspacenew/Androidtaglibexample/obj/
local/armeabi/taglibwav.so] Error 1

Application configuration information is:

Taglib ./configure :-

./configure CC="/home/hcl/taglib/taglib/toolchain/bin/arm-linux-androideabi-gcc"\
--host="arm-linux" \
--build="arm" \
--enable-static="no" \
--enable-shared="yes" \
--prefix="/home/test/workspacenew/Androidtaglibexample/jni/testtaglib/"\

Android.mk :-

#declare the prebuilt library
include $(CLEAR_VARS)
LOCAL_MODULE := taglibtest
LOCAL_SRC_FILES := testtaglib/lib/libtag.a
LOCAL_EXPORT_C_INCLUDES := testtaglib/include/taglib/

Android NDK Version :- Android-Ndk-r7c

Please, guide me in the right direction to fix what I’m doing wrong

How to solve:

I think you might need -ltag_c in there somewhere

###

  TagLib_File *file;  //<< accessed form tag_c.h : OK
  TagLib_Tag *tag;    //<< accessed form tag_c.h : OK
  const TagLib_AudioProperties *properties; //<<accessed form tag_c.h : OK
  taglib_set_strings_unicode(FALSE);//<<accessed form tag_c.h : GETTING ERROR

The reason you can’t access taglib_set_strings_unicode is because of how TAGLIB_C_EXPORT is defined in tag_c.h.

#if defined(_WIN32) || defined(_WIN64)
#ifdef MAKE_TAGLIB_C_LIB
#define TAGLIB_C_EXPORT __declspec(dllexport)
#else
#define TAGLIB_C_EXPORT __declspec(dllimport)
#endif
#elif defined(__GNUC__) && (__GNUC__ > 4 || __GNUC__ == 4 && __GNUC_MINOR__ >= 1)
#define TAGLIB_C_EXPORT __attribute__ ((visibility("default")))
#else
#define TAGLIB_C_EXPORT
#endif
...
typedef struct { int dummy; } TagLib_File;
typedef struct { int dummy; } TagLib_Tag;
typedef struct { int dummy; } TagLib_AudioProperties;
...
TAGLIB_C_EXPORT void taglib_set_strings_unicode(BOOL unicode);
...

###

To get the job done I would hack tag_c.h at line 43 to define the proper visibility rules:

#define TAGLIB_C_EXPORT __attribute__ ((visibility("default")))

If this works, you might open a bug at taglib and link back to this question.

###

LOCAL_STATIC_LIBRARY := taglibtest

You are using static library, not shared. The directive to use shared one confuses the build environment.

###

You need to link both tag_c.h.o and taglibwav.o :

gcc -o program tag_c.h taglibwav.c
