Local fix

  • N/A
    

Problem summary

  • The problem is caused due to inconsistent use of
    allocation/deallocation routines while retrieving the classpath
    during JVM initialization.
    

Problem conclusion

  • This defect will be fixed in:
    6.0.0 SR12
    6.0.1 SR4
    .
    The JDK has been updated to prevent the crash from occurring by
    ensuring that allocation/deallocation happens via OS APIs while
    retrieving the classpath during JVM initialization.
