calling native code from html5 apps has been explicitly talked about and barred.
there can be none of that. what you probably want is native applications. these
are full native binaries like anything else on linux (or .exe's for the windows
world people).

all the apps the tizen reference platforms shipped with and the emulator
shipped with are native apps. they are normal executables. it is not a pure
html environment unlike what the publicity seems to lead people to believe.

the native applications that ship with tizen today (browser included) are
written in c/c++ and use regular c libraries. the libraires they use for doing
a lot of their work are EFL (http://www.enlightenment.org). This provides
mainloop, thread abstractions, communication stack, rendering, widgets,
abstracted layout, input method integration etc. etc. etc.
