calling ROHC library from java project in eclipse

Asked by johnny on 2014-05-27

Hello,
i am working on a project about SDN. i am using floodlight controller.
I want to compress all incoming packets on the controller.
I am able to get the packet content n eclipse (using java), how can i use the ROHC library to perform compression?
i saw that i can use JNI (Java Native Interface) to call a c library for example.

Is it possible with ROHC or hard ? do you have any suggestions?

Thank you for your time,
Johnny

It should be definitely possible to use the ROHC library in a Java application with JNI. I didn't know JNI well enough however, so I cannot comment about the difficulty level.

In practice, I recommend you to use the main dev branch as a starting point. I recommend you also to work step by step. Start with the rohc_version() function, it is very basic, so it is the best target to test your JNI setup. Then continue with the compression API (compressor creation/deletion, packet compression). Finally, add the same functions for decompression API.

Having a Java binding for the ROHC library would be great, so don't hesitate to ask me questions if needed :)
