Python has an extension called ctypes http://python.net/crew/theller/ctypes/
which is used to make calls to dlls for any os format. I'm looking for something like this but for Java.
Another tool i'm looking for is an intel assembler coded in Java that can build dlls for any os format. This tool complements the tool above.
The idea is to develop Java applications that can access native apis but are 100% coded and maintained using Java source and Eclipse. Not need for C code and native c compiler tools.
I tried looking for these two tools but found nothing. Does anyone know of an open source project that provides tools similar to this?
