Java Native Access (JNA): Pure Java access to native libraries

jna: Java Native Access (JNA): Pure Java access to native libraries
JNA provides Java programs easy access to native shared libraries (DLLs on Windows) without writing anything but Java code--no JNI or native code is required. This functionality is comparable to Windows' Platform/Invoke and Python's ctypes. Access is dynamic at runtime without code generation. JNA's design aims to provide native access in a natural way with a minimum of effort. No boilerplate or generated code is required. While some attention is paid to performance, correctness and ease of use take priority.
