I am updating the post even if the solution I have found might concern
few people here (Java  developers).
I am using SDL.dll from Java through the JNI this way :


I make no call to SDL from Java (my Java app calls pad.dll which calls SDL.dll)
but this way I can put  SDL.dll in a subdirectory of the working directory.
