APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • Error Message: An illegal instruction exception is received in
    JIT compiled code. It attempted to branch to an invalid address
    0x0.
    .
    Stack Trace: N/A
    .
    

Local fix

  • This issue can be worked around using
    -Xjit:disableEscapeAnalysis. It can also be worked around with
    -Xjit:exclude to exclude the problematic method.
    

Problem summary

  • The problem is caused when the JIT fails to add a reference to
    an array to the stack to ensure that the array is not moved by
    GC.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The JIT has been updated to prevent incorrect Java stack frame
    creation.
