Creating native shared library with Android studio

  android, android-studio, c++, shared-libraries

I am trying to build a Native (C++) share library in Android studio (it will be linked to another project). I created the Native project, but whatever I try, it seems I have to have at least one java file that calls a C++ API from that library, meaning I need another C++ file in my set of native files containing the function the Java file calls.
I do not want this additional file, because it will be part of the shared library. I just want to create a shared library. Any idea how to do it, or should I switch back to ndk_build and its set of makefiles?
