    Default UnsatisfiedLinkError

    Hi All

    Hi All,

    I am trying to use one of the jar files. The porgram compiles fine but when I try to run the program it gives me this error. I have put the jar file into the class path. I have put the location of dierctory containing the jar file into path but still its not working. Can anyone suggest what can be the cause of the problem?

    Exception in thread "main" java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError: no jxi in java.library.path
    at java.lang.ClassLoader.loadLibrary(ClassLoader.java :1709)
    at java.lang.Runtime.loadLibrary0(Runtime.java:823)

    Wink Re: UnsatisfiedLinkError

    Hey leepan2008,

    Seems like the issue is that you are using some native methods in your program and the native libraries are missing from the path.

    Here is what java docs says about UnsatisfiedLinkError : "Thrown if the Java Virtual Machine cannot find an appropriate native-language definition of a method declared native"

    Here is one link from sun about the native method usages and properties to be set: Sun Native Methods

    In case if you want to print what your java library path is, you can do it using following:
    public void getSystemProperty() {
    String path = System.getProperty("java.library.path");
    Hope that helps you to sort out the issue.
