Subject Re: Solution to native dependencies with Ivy
Date Sun, 02 Aug 2009 18:56:29 GMT
Just as an aside: One general problem with native dependencies is that
java.library.path only applies to direct dependencies from Java to
native libraries, but not to transitive dependencies, that is from one
ntaive lirary to another. If a native library is loaded by Java, and
this library has a dependency to another native library, this second
library is not loaded by Java, but natively by the OS, and hence
ignores any java.library.path settings. This is a typical situation
when the first library is a JNI bridge library to an existing native
library. In that case OS specific mechanisms have to be used so that
the dependent native libraries can be correctly located.
