Calling non-existent or incorrectly-named native code from within Java, results in java runtime just

Howdy - I am new to both Java programming and Android. That is my disclaimer.

When I call native code from within Java, the Java runtime seems to just spin forever in some loop if that native function is not actually defined (because I didn’t define it, or because I messed up the name mangling). I would have expected a Java runtime error saying what it was looking for. Is there some setting I should be enabling to get this output?

I retract this question. The Java runtime does in fact report this missing native function.
