Issue:
In an attempt to wrap the SciChart Server Licensing shared object using java (JNA), I ended up with strange behavior when calling any function which returns char *. In Java, the returned pointer memory does not start at the correct offset which holds the string value and therefore invalid characters are returned.

Hypothesis:
My guess, after evaluation, is that either the function is returning some std::string object, or that it is actually returning say str.c_str() where str is an std::string. The issue is that returning str.c_str() causes the reference to be dropped once it is out of scope, this means that a dangling pointer is returned. I ended up needing to wrap the function calls in another extern C layer to get the desired functionality in Java, see link below for snippets and attached zip files for source.
