According to this (closed) bug report, java.library.path is meant to be a read-only property. However this workaround solves that problem:

        Field field = ClassLoader.class.getDeclaredField("usr_paths");
        field.setAccessible(true);
        String[] paths = (String[])field.get(null);
        for (int i = 0; i < paths.length; i++) {
            if (s.equals(paths[i])) {
                return;
            }
        }
        String[] tmp = new String[paths.length+1];
        System.arraycopy(paths,0,tmp,0,paths.length);
        tmp[paths.length] = s;
        field.set(null,tmp);
        System.setProperty("java.library.path", System.getProperty("java.library.path") + File.pathSeparator + s);
    } catch (IllegalAccessException e) {
        throw new IOException("Failed to get permissions to set library path");
    } catch (NoSuchFieldException e) {
        throw new IOException("Failed to get field handle to set library path");
    }
}


For those of you who really need to run a LWJGL application by double clicking the jar yet you want the natives in their own subfolder, this is for you Smiley

Obviously this might not be portable across JVMs.

You can also write a classloader to find the natives and load your app using the classloader.
