JNI and applets
I have to call some native methods from inside and applet but all the pundits are saying you cannot use JNI with applets. That does not worry me at all. When we created the Rad SFTP Applet we heard the same thing. But that product went onto become featured on the java website.
JNI is something that has been in the outer fringe of my knowledge base but I have never used it because like many I have always found more platform independent ways of doing it. Like Many I have also had trouble getting the darned thing to work first up. This post in java forums sums it up.
