This class shows an easy way to configure Logtalk in SWI or YAP using the Jpl library, together with examples of simple invocations of Logtalk methods from Java. You need to have the jpl jar in your classpath to compile and execute this file.

/**
* This class shows how to configure Logtalk in SWI or YAP using the Jpl library.
* You need to have the jpl jar in your classpath to compile and execute this file.
* In this example, we explicitly set the directory where the native part of the JPL library is located
* (with calls to JPL.setNativeLibraryDir)
* Note that this step is not necessary if java is invoked with the parameter java.library.path, like:
* java -Djava.library.path="the_jpl_path"
* Or, if the path to the Jpl native library is already part of the default search path of libraries in your operative system
* (e.g., if it is included in DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH in OSX, or LD_LIBRARY_PATH in Linux)
