Can't run Juce code on Android (assertion failure in juce_android_SystemStats.cpp and SIGSEGV)



I got a c++ project using Qt that I can run on Android.

When I put some Juce code in it (like some lines in the main), the Android app craches with this trace:

The juce_android_SystemStats.cpp:106 is the getEnv function:

JNIEnv* getEnv() noexcept
    JNIEnv* env = androidJNIEnv.get();
    jassert (env != nullptr);

    return env;

What could be wrong ?


Thanks !


If it's not an introjucer-generated project that you're probably missing the java activity class that the juce code needs for some of its OS functionality. That'd be why it can't find that stuff.


Yes, it is not an Introjucer-generated project but a project using the Qt build toolchain (qmake + qtdeployandroid).

Qt's Android build toolchain ( produces all the Android required stuff including a java activity class which does not include Juce special code.

What Juce special code should I put to get the things working ?

What are the Juce requirements in terms of Android compliance ?

In other words, how can I make Juce working with Qt using the Qt build toolchain ?


We provide the introjucer to generate everything a juce project needs, so if you're going off-piste with a completely different build system then you'll need to figure that out yourself, I'm afraid. I don't have a clue about how Qt builds are structured, and can't help with that.

The place to look would be to create a simple project with the introjucer (or just look at the juce demo one) and look at the java activity file that it generates. That's what we use to bootstrap juce, and juce will expect to be able to find all the methods and classes that it provides to interface with the OS.
