Native code outside library directory

Native code outside library directory

In general, application native code should only be placed in the application's library directory, not in other locations such as the res or assets directories. Placing the code in the library directory provides increased assurance that the code will not be tampered with after application installation. Application developers should use the features of their development environment to place application native libraries into the lib directory of their compiled APKs. Embedding non-shared library native executables into applications should be avoided when possible.
