How to include multiple c files to compile in android NDK?

By | April 28, 2012

I ran into problem when I had multiple C files in my project. Single C file was OK for me.
I was getting undefined reference error while doing this.
Then I found out the solution after a lot of search in google.

I have to make the change in the file to include other files to compile.

This is the content of my file

LOCAL_PATH := $(call my-dir)

include $(CLEAR_VARS)


LOCAL_MODULE := ndksetup
LOCAL_SRC_FILES := native.c test.c test_2.c


Here is my native.c code in which I am including those two files test.c and test2.c


#include <jni.h>
#include <string.h>
#include <android/log.h>

// my test file
#include "test.h"
#include "test_2.h"

#define DEBUG_TAG "NDKSetupActivity"

void Java_com_ndksetup_NDKSetupActivity_printLog(JNIEnv * env, jobject this, jstring logString)
jboolean isCopy;
const char * szLogString = (*env)->GetStringUTFChars(env, logString, &isCopy);

__android_log_print(ANDROID_LOG_DEBUG, "TAGGGGG", "NDK: %s", szLogString);

(*env)->ReleaseStringUTFChars(env, logString, szLogString);
int Java_com_ndksetup_NDKSetupActivity_fibonacci(int value)
int p = 8;
return p;
