What's the best way to package your application? Do you need three
different versions, or is there some magic that will allow the app
locate and load the proper version of the JNI library at runtime?

I would go for an installer generator that know all 3 OS'es.

No simple packaging solution.

Yeah, that's what I thouight. That's one of the reasons I try as
hard as I can to avoid JNI. Imagine if you could do the following:

1. Put a JNI-path entry in a jar file's manifest
2. This would point to a JNI library, indexed by, os.arch, and

Developing JNI would still be a bit onerous, but shipping JNI-using
apps would be a breeze. And adding new platforms would be
straightforward for either the developer or the end-user.

The problem would be that the library is not loaded by JVM code
but by OS code - there may be OS'es where it would be impossible
to let the JVM specify the path to the OS.
