android – JNI ERROR (app bug): local reference table overflow (max=512)

Posted by: admin May 14, 2020 Leave a comment

Questions:

I am trying to run the LibSVMAndroidClassification Android project with my own dataset. It works perfectly fine with the dataset already provided and it also works fine when I use my csv with 100 rows (which is less than 1% of original size). But when I try to go for “Train CSV” with for e.g 1000 rows then I see this error. I even tried to set android:largeHeap=”true” in Manifest.xml but nothing improved.

This is my logcat dump.

I have googled a lot but still I am unable to understand the background and reason behind this. Many people have faced this same error in different situations. What can be a suitable pointer to the solution ?

Thanks in advance !

How to&Answers:

you’d better use DeleteLocalRef to delete the local reference that never be used later.
e.g.

for (int i = 0; i < 512; i++)
{
        jobject obj = env->GetObjectArrayElement(array, i);
        //your code here    
        env->DeleteLocalRef(obj);   
}
