    I expect you mean why you would want to use it, so that's what
    I'll address. All locally allocated references in native code
    are thread specific. Trying to access a local reference from
    a thread other than the one in which it was created is going
    to cause your code to crash or behave badly. But that's not
    true of global references, so if you need access from multiple
    threads, turn your local reference into a global reference.
    Global references are also longer lived and not automatically
    freed when the native method that created them returns to

    Hope that helps.
