If I understand correctly, the property is `awt.toolkit'.
I believe this is documented in the Toolkit class (though I haven't
looked recently).

The easiest way to find the JNI name for a given method is to generate
the JNI header using gcjh.  Then read the header to see the name.

    gcjh -jni classname

gcjh can also generate JNI stubs for you.  It generates a skeleton C
file which you then fill in with implementations.  This will just
overwrite your existing `.c' file with the skeleton, so use with care:

    gcjh -jni -stubs classname

gcjh doesn't currently have a mode to just print out the names.
Nobody ever asked for that, and I never wanted it myself.

The libgcj JNI implementation also has some code that is used to
generate the JNI names (note there are two possible names for
non-overloaded methods; see the JNI spec).  This code is in
libjava/  I think it is relatively easy to understand.

You can also use any function name you want by registering the mapping
in JNI_OnLoad.  It is probably best to just stick with the normal
JNI-specific naming scheme though.
