> I am trying to use JavaScriptCore in my Android application.

First, understand that the Android bindings in WebKit have been
removed (that includes JSC), thus I would advise asking the question
on an Android specific mailing list as people here obviously don't do
Android development (apart from some people).

I would double check that the symbols are present in your static
library before looking any further as it could be the root cause. If
that does not work, look for some help on the Android.mk side.

Hope it helps,
