Actually compiling java source files to native binaries/libraries makes
debugging much easier with gdb (especially if you are used to debugging
with gdb). When your code "hits" JNI/C or CNI/C++ code you just continue
to step through it. That is a really nice advantage of using the GNU
Compiler Collection (GCC) languages together with gdb it doesn't matter
which language your code is actually written in the debugger will grok
