  Description     : Dynamically access native libraries from Java without JNI.

 JNA provides Java programs easy access to native shared libraries
 without writing anything but Java code—no JNI or native code is
 required. This functionality is comparable to Windows'
 Platform/Invoke and Python's ctypes. Access is dynamic at runtime
 without code generation.

 JNA's design aims to provide native access in a natural way with a
 minimum of effort. No boilerplate or generated code is required.
 While some attention is paid to performance, correctness and ease of
 use take priority.

 The JNA library uses a small native library stub to dynamically
 invoke native code. The developer uses a Java interface to describe
 functions and structures in the target native library. This makes it
 quite easy to take advantage of native platform features without
 incurring the high overhead of configuring and building JNI code for
 multiple platforms.
