An interface to the Java(tm) VM
This extension uses the Java(tm) native interface (JNI) to run a Java(tm) from Scheme code.
To build this extension you should set some environment variables before invoking chicken-setup:
Defines the variables NAME ..., holding pointers to the Java classes of the same name. NAME may be either a symbol or a list of the form (VARIABLE CLASSNAME).
(define-java-classes Foo Bar) is equivalent to (begin (define Foo (jni:find-class "Foo")) (define Bar (jni:find-class "Bar")))
The following JNI procedures are provided:
(jni:find-class STRING) -> CLASS (jni:define-class STRING LOADER BYTE-VECTOR LENGTH) -> CLASS (jni:get-version) -> INT (jni:get-superclass CLASS) -> SUPERCLASS (jni:is-assignable-from? CLASS SUPERCLASS) -> BOOL (jni:throw THROWABLE) -> INT (jni:throw-new CLASS STRING) -> INT (jni:exception-occurred) -> THROWABLE (jni:exception-describe) (jni:exception-clear) (jni:fatal-error STRING) (jni:is-same-object? OBJECT1 OBJECT2) -> BOOL (jni:get-object-class OBJECT) -> CLASS (jni:is-instance-of? OBJECT CLASS) -> BOOL (jni:exception-check) -> BOOL (jni:monitor-enter OBJECT) -> INT (jni:monitor-exit OBJECT) -> INT (jni:get-array-length OBJECT) -> INT (jni:new-object-array LENGTH CLASS OBJECT) -> OBJECT' (jni:get-object-array-element OBJECT' INT) -> OBJECT (jni:set-object-array-element! OBJECT' INT OBJECT) (jni:string->jstring STRING) -> OBJECT (jni:jstring->string OBJECT) -> STRING
Arguments named OBJECT, CLASS and THROWABLE should be Java objects.
Returns #t if X is a Java object or #f otherwise.
Returns a procedure that, when called, will invoke the Java method NAME (which should be a string or symbol) and that has the result-type RETURN-TYPE and the argument-types given in TYPELIST. CLASS should be a Java object representing a class. If SAFE? is given and true, then the method may invoke callbacks into Scheme.
The returned procedure takes the receiver object as its first argument, followed by zero or more method arguments.
Similar to jni:method but returns a procedure that will call a method looked up in a specific class.
Similar to jni:method but returns a procedure that will call a static method. The procedure does not take an additional argument beyond the arguments that are expected by the static method.
Similar to jni:method but returns a procedure that will call a constructor method.
Returns a procedure that can be used to access the field NAME (a string or symbol). The accessor-procedure accepts a single argument: the instance from which the field value should be retrieved. The returned procedure has a setter, so to modify the field, execute (set! (<ACCESSOR> <OBJECT>) <VALUE>).
Returns a procedure that can be used to access the static field NAME (a string or symbol). The accessor-procedure takes zero arguments. The returned procedure has a setter, so to modify the field, execute (set! (<ACCESSOR>) <VALUE>).
