We are going to dig a little deeper in our exploration of Project Panama and how to talk to third party libraries such as SDL & OpenGL.
With the skills you’ve learned from Part 1 and Part 2, you should be able to call most of the common function signatures in many libraries out in the wild.
Project Panama for Newbies (Part 1)
In this series of articles, we will explore the APIs from OpenJDK’s Project Panama.
My intent is to show you how to be proficient in using the Foreign Linker APIs (module ‘jdk.incubator.foreign’) as it relates to Java interoperability with native code.
While this article is for newbies, I assume you know the basics of the Java language, a little bash scripting, and a familiarity with C programming concepts. If you are new to C language don’t worry I will go over the concepts later.
