I guess they want their developers to use Java. Otherwise they
would have made C++ a first class citizens and not force C++ to
go through Java.
Certainly, that is also one of the reasons why they have come up
with Renderscript and are now moving to native compiled Java post
I don't have any issue with Java and do like the language, but it
has lost its place if you care about portable code across mobile
Hence why I am using C++, as it is the only common language
across all SDKs thus requiring minimal setup to get going.
