    Chapter   1

This chapter introduces the /Java Native Interface/ (JNI). The JNI is a 
native programming interface. It allows Java code that runs inside a 
Java Virtual Machine (VM) to interoperate with applications and 
libraries written in other programming languages, such as C, C++, and 

The most important benefit of the JNI is that it imposes no restrictions 
on the implementation of the underlying Java VM. Therefore, Java VM 
vendors can add support for the JNI without affecting other parts of the 
VM. Programmers can write one version of a native application or library 
and expect it to work with all Java VMs supporting the JNI.
