Error description

  • Error Message: When trying to launch Java using JNI_CreateJavaVM
    on AIX the process hangs in an infinite loop.
    .
    Stack Trace: N/A
    .
    

Local fix

  • EITHER:
    1) Copy /<jre>/lib/<arch>/j9vm/libjvm.so to
    /<jre>/lib/<arch>/j9vm/libjvm.a
    OR
    2) Set LIBPATH=/<jre>/lib/<arch>/classic
    Where <jre> is the path to the JRE install location, and <arch>
    is ppc or ppc64 depending on architecture.
    

Problem summary

  • The problem occurs when AIX returns the symbolically linked
    libjvm.a (which the application was compiled against) when the
    JVM requests libjvm.so
    

Problem conclusion

  • This defect will be fixed in:
    6.0.0 SR12
    6.0.1 SR4
    7.0.0 SR3
    .
    The JVM has been updated to mark when it has requested libjvm.so
    and will no longer enter an infinite loop.
    

Temporary fix
