It looks like you are running on some version of Windows, so I'll answer for
that.  The answer for *nix systems is slightly different.

The "testc.dll" file can be anyplace that you want, as long as the directory
is included in the PATH environment variable when the JVM is started.  As
someone else mentioned, dropping it into c:\windows\system32 is almost
guaranteed to work (as distasteful as it is :).  You could also launch
Tomcat with an explicit:

Hi group:

Any help with the follwoing error would be greatly appreciated

2003-05-15 12:50:15 StandardContext[/hello-jaxrpc]: Exception sending
context initialized event to listener instance of class
java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError: no testc in java.library.path

starting the application but can't find "testc.dll" is the problem but where
should i put it under the tomcat directory structure? i have run out of
places to try - i've tried WEB-INF, WEB-INF/classes, shared/classes and even
tried puttin it jar format under WEB-INF/lib and shared/lib but to no avail.
Here's the xml that starts the app if it helps, it is called hello-jaxrpc
and resides in webapps (there's no entry in the server.xml)

<Context path="/hello-jaxrpc" docBase="../webapps/hello-jaxrpc" debug="3"

  <Logger className="org.apache.catalina.logger.FileLogger"
          prefix="hello-jaxrpc_log." suffix=".txt" timestamp="true"/>


Here's what i'm trying to do. I have a client that is sending a msg to a
simpe tomcat server app called hello.

package hello;
public class HelloImpl implements HelloIF {

 public String message = "Hello ";

    public String sayHello(String s) {
    return message + si;
The above server code works fine, the client sends a string, this server
sends back hello + string to the client, so far so good.

Now the trouble comes -  i'm trying to call a "c" class in testc.dll from
the above java class (modified below) but get
"java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError: no testc in java.library.path" in the
hello-jaxrpc_log i set up for the application. How do I set the
java.library.path ? Or what's the default path? I thought is was

Here the modifed code

package hello;
public class HelloImpl implements HelloIF {

 public String message = "Hello ";
 public int i=0;

    public String sayHello(String s) {
    i = new HelloImpl().gemsg(); // added call to native code
    return message + s + i;
    public native int getmsg(); // getmsg() is a c routine compiled into
testc.dll, all it does is return an integer.

    static {
        System.loadLibrary("testc"); // this fails when the application is
being loaded by tomcat, i never even get to run the client
