I am probably missing something here but I can not find working instructions on how to use HDF5 in Java as a library through JNI (I want to open, read, and write H5 files).
My assumption is that I download HDF5 source, compile it and end up with a jar file and native libraries for Linux in this case. Together, they can be used in Java.
Please correct me if there is another way.
I tried to follow these instructions https://portal.hdfgroup.org/display/support/HDF-Java#HDF-Java-build
- on the branch hdf_5_10 there is no configure executable
- on the latest branch hdf_5_13_2 the configure file is Windows formatted (dos2unix) and after compiling no Java libraries are created
Can anyone please point me in the right direction?
Thanks in advance!
