What am I doing wrong in my attempts at using a dot lib file for a DLL project
I'm using Windows 7, NetBeans 7.1.2 and the C:\MinGW\bin\g++.exe compiler/linker.
I have 2 projects. A Java project get data from a C++ project via JNI (the Java Navtive Interface).
My problem involves trying to reference a static library using linker options such as "-l" and "-L". This was unsuccessful because the "-l" option only takes the name of the library and not a path to the library file. The "L" option takes a path to the folder with the library, but it did not work for me.
So, my question is how do you reference a static library within NetBeans?
