Description Nick Raponi 2004-12-22 22:40:15 UTC
Description of problem:
The technology preview of the 64-bit version of BEA Weblogic Jrockit
java development kit (as found at
http://commerce.bea.com/products/weblogicjrockit/5.0/jr_50.jsp) does
not run correctly.

All of the commands (for instance the compiler, runtime and name
servers) do not work (respond) when executed. In all instances the
command returns no output and sits unresponsive until the process is

This report was initially filed with BEA newsgroups and the response
from there was to file the report here as the comment received was
that the output indicates that it may be a bug in the mmap implementation.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
WebLogic JRockit 5.0 JDK for Linux (Xeon - 64 bit)

How reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install the jrockit jdk into a directory
2. (Not mandatory) set JAVA_HOME environment variable to the install
directory that contains the "bin" directory
3. (Not mandatory) add the "bin" directory to the PATH
4. Execute "java -version" 
Actual results:
No output is generated, the process does not complete and the system
sits using 100% cpu utilisation.

strace output to be attached.

Expected results:
A line should be returned indicating the version of the JDK and the
process should exit immediately.

Additional info:
Running "strace" with the command provided additional information that
will be added to this note  (note that the mmap lines at the end of
the trace continued ad-infinitum with ever increasing addresses and so
have been stripped for brevity (in a matter of moments the output file
grew to over 91m!)

way to purge them.

Thank you.
