    Android crashing on JNI CallStaticObjectMethod

      Hello there,

      I'm trying to invoke a static method on Android and my app is crashing... the code is very simple, I ran out of ideas -- there isn't much I can think of that might be going on.

      Here's the snippet:

      char const *FileUtils::cachesDir() {
           JavaVM *vm = JniHelper::getJavaVM();
           JNIEnv *env;
           int status = vm->GetEnv((void **)&env, JNI_VERSION_1_4);
           if(status >= 0){
                jclass cls = env->FindClass("android/content/ContextWrapper");
                jmethodID method = env->GetMethodID(cls, "getFilesDir", "()Ljava/io/File;");
                jobject result = env->CallStaticObjectMethod(cls, method, NULL); **// <-- ***** CRASHES WITH java.lang.NullPointerException at android.content.ContextWrapper.getFilesDir(ContextWrapper.java:193) *****
                return "Found a result";
           return "NULL";


      Thanks and regards,
      - Fabiano
