java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError: dalvik.system.PathClassLoader

Is there someone who had experience with this error?

java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError: dalvik.system.PathClassLoader[DexPathList[[zip file "/data/app/org.swig.simple-2/base.apk"],nativeLibraryDirectories=[/vendor/lib, /system/lib]]] couldn't find ""

Error occurs when I load library by this way.

static {

I'm sure 'example' class is exist in the current folder.


Please note that there's a naming convention. Your lib needs to be called .

LoadLibrary("example") will look for

The .so library needs to be inside the apk under the lib folder (since you are developing for Android, it needs to be under the lib/armeabi and lib/armeabi-v7a folders - why both folders ? some versions of Android look under lib/armeabi and some look under lib/armeabi-v7a ... se what works for you ).

Other things to look for :

  • make sure you compile for the correct architecture (if you compile for armeabi v5 it won't work on armeabiv7 or armeabiv7s ).

  • make sure your exported prototypes are used in the correct class (check the hello jni example. Your exposed functions need to look something like Java_mypackagename_myjavabridgeclass_myfunction).

For example the function Java_com_example_sample_hello will translate in the java class com.example.sample , function hello.
