I see conflicting information on the availability of JNI for creating BlackBerry apps. Searching on JNI from the main developers page, it comes up with a hit in the article An Introduction to BlackBerry Development (July 2005) :

 Java ME does not provide support for the following Java 2 Standard Edition (J2SE) features:

  • Java Native Interface (JNI)

However, slide 12 of the Creating BlackBerry Applications: A Developer's Toolkit presentation for the recent 2008 online Seminar states:


†Some UI, Cryptography, and other processor intensive
implementations are performed in native code (C/C++) using JNI.


Can I create a DLL/Library with C code?

the text from the slide most likely refers to the blackberry OS.
as a developer you can not use JNI on a blackberry.
