Android Question Additionaljar Emojicon

I tried for several days to create a wrapper for this library, but has been impossible for me for my lack of understanding about how to make a wrapper. And I

I decided to try #AdditionalJar , but I can not do it. I do not get how to create a view and add it to B4A project.

I compiled the library in eclipse and I copied the resulting .jar to additional libraries folder , as stated in the AdditionalJar example .

Then, when test the code and create the view, tells me that no constructor.

In Manifest
<activity android:name="com.rockerhieu.emojicon" android:configChanges="keyboard|keyboardHidden|orientation|screenLayout|uiMode|screenSize|smallestScreenSize"
android:hardwareAccelerated="false" />)

And this is the code simplified

#AdditionalJar: Emojicon

Sub GetContext As JavaObject
  Return GetBA.GetField("context")
End Sub

Sub GetBA As JavaObject
  Dim jo As JavaObject
  Dim cls As String = Me
  cls = cls.SubString("class ".Length)
  Return jo.GetFieldJO("processBA")
End Sub

Sub Activity_Create(FirstTime As Boolean)
   Dim Ad As JavaObject
   Ad.InitializeNewInstance("com.rockerhieu.emojicon.EmojiconTextView", Array(GetContext))
   Activity.AddView(Ad, 0, 0, 200dip, 200dip)
End Sub

The same applies to other views , except EmojiconTextView , which does have constructor, but not displayed.

I don't know if I can upload the compiled .jar of the library.

Can you give me a little help to continue?
