HI Tim and Sebastian,
   Thank you very much for your kindly help.  
   I have one more question, how to write a static plugin, looks like I didn't find it in the document?    how can I compile it to a static library for Android?      
   Could you please help?
Thanks and Regards,Haiming Wang

And that's exactly how you should do it on Android, as Android's support
