Invoking JNI functions in Android package name containing underscore

I am trying to implement MP3 encoding in Android using the LAME library following these guides:
Lame MP3 Encoder compile for Android
http://developer.samsung.com/android/technical-docs/Porting-and-using-LAME-MP3-on-Android-with-JNI

However I am getting a java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError which I believe might be due to the fact that my package name contains an underscore which it interprets as a full stop .

Looking at my code below is this likely this issue and how do I get around that. Or is there something else causing this. Thanks in advance for any help.

Record.java:

package co.uk.ing_simmons.aberdeensoundsites;

public class Record extends Activity implements OnClickListener {

static {
System.loadLibrary("mp3lame");
}

private native void initEncoder(int numChannels, int sampleRate, int bitRate, int mode, int quality);

private native void destroyEncoder();

private native int encodeFile(String sourcePath, String targetPath);

[.....]
}


wrapper.c:

void Java_co_uk_ing_simmons_aberdeensoundsites_Record_initEncoder(JNIEnv *env,
jobject jobj, jint in_num_channels, jint in_samplerate, jint in_brate,
jint in_mode, jint in_quality) {
[....]

Answer

You should follow the underscore with the number 1. So if your package name contains ing_simmons then your JNI would be formed like so.

void Java_co_uk_ing_1simmons_aberdeensoundsites_Record_initEncoder

This is true also if you have underscores in any other part of the call, such as class name or method name in the Java file.
