I’m attempting to construct a multiplatform (iOS & Android) C++ library that links against JUCE.
Looking through forum posts I can see that a couple of years ago this was not possible:
(Timur, Apr 2016 Build juce shared library for Android, stuck):
Building C++ libraries for Android, whether static or dynamic, is currently not supported.
The reason is that a lot of JUCE functionality on Android relies on our JUCE AppActivity class written in Java. But if you are building a library, you don’t have that activity class.
(Jules, May 2016 juce_CreateApplication() for Dynamic Library in Android):
Right now a lot of the juce codebase relies on being able to call Java methods in the activity class in order to control a whole bunch of OS functionality. So it’s not really possible to just build a standalone
This is something we want to change, by rewriting all of these Java dependencies as embedded C++/JNI code, which would make this possible, but this will take some time, and won’t happen just yet!
This is a complete showstopper!
Has any advance being made since these posts? Could someone from ROLI give a status report, maybe even put an ETA on it?
