ELFCLASS64 error when running the appplication

I have read a lot of tutorials of making a "Hello World" JNI application.
But I allways get
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError: /home/Roxxor/JavaApps/ 
/home/Roxxor/JavaApps/ wrong ELF class: ELFCLASS64 (Possible cause: architecture word width mismatch)
My JRE is 64bit and I compiled the shared file with 64bit support:
g++ -m64 -shared -I/usr/java/jdk.1.6.0_17/include -I/usr/java/jdk.1.6.0_17/include/linux NativeExample.cpp -o -fPIC
Where is the mismatch?

Solved it. It seems that the JVM didn´t have support for 64 bit although, so I compiled the shared library with:
g++ -m32 -shared -I/usr/java/jdk.1.6.0_17/include -I/usr/java/jdk.1.6.0_17/include/linux NativeExample.cpp -o -fPIC
and then it worked.

Strange, because when I print all java properties, the
- states "Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM" and
- prints "HotSpot 64-Bit Server Compiler"

So, is it a 32 or a 64 Bit JDK I am working with?
