Are Java native methods inlined ?

Hi guys,

Just a simple question : are Java native methods inlined ?

By "native methods" I mean the interface between the Java caller and the
targeted native JNI function in the dl (for which the JIT-compiled code can
be observed using *+PrintNativeNMethods)*.

I ask this question since I don't observe inlining with Java 8 and I heard
it was. Although I understand that it could not necessarily lead to great
improvements it's just for a clarification.

Thanks a lot !
