I have installed or unzipped the Java Native Interface or JNI library onto my desktop.
What I want to perform next is how to reference its file path within the Xamarin IDE in Visual Studio.

This question applies to the following:
Visual Studio 2019
Java Native Interface
C\C++\C# code interaction with the JNI.
Windows 10 64-bit Enterprise Edition
Hyper-V plug in emulator for both Android and iOS mobile operating systems.

Here I have found it's JNI library file within the file path: C:\Program Files\Java\jdk-15.0.1\include\jni.h

What I want to perform next is to include its file path within the Xamarin IDE's solution explorer pane.

Users are welcome to answer and assist me as long as its relevant to the topic.
