APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • Error Message: An IllegalMonitorStateException is thrown by a
    Java method that has been re-compiled at higher optimization
    levels. The throwing method likely has been inlined into a loop
    in its caller.
    .
    Stack Trace: N/A
    .
    

Local fix

  • This issue can be worked around using the
    -Xjit:disableRedundantMonitorElimination option.
    

Problem summary

  • This problem occurs when the inlining of a virtual method is
    disabled for correctness, e.g. after the loading of a new class
    that implements the same method. If the inlined call site is on
    a code path that locks multiple objects, the compensating code
    generated by the JIT compiler incorrectly attempts to unlock the
    same object twice.
    

Problem conclusion

  • This defect will be fixed in:
    6.0.0 SR13
    5.0.0 SR16
    6.0.1 SR5
    7.0.0 SR4
    .
    The JIT compiler has been updated to generate correct code for
    the non-inlined virtual method call sequence.
