Android NDK tutorial (JNI)

JNI stands for Java native interface that enable Java to use Native application or library such as C/C++ or assembly in Java application.
1. Before following this tutorial, all those software should be installed and downloaded first :

4. Create “hello-jni.c” in “jni” folder (right click on “jni” folder>>new>>File
5. Paste source code as shown (make sure package name is correct: mine use “com.example.hellojni”) in 
    this .c file, jstring 
    - Java_com_example_hellojni_HelloJni_stringFromJNI (red:package,purple:java class that jump to
       .c file, blue: function name in java class)

6. Under “jni” folder, create “Android.mk” file. (same procedure as created .c file)
7. Native Compilation
    - Use cygwin to compile native part ( go to project folder using cygwin command line and type file path
      for ndk-build in android-ndk)
