APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • Error Message: An unexpected InvocationTargetException is thrown
    by the JVM.
    .
    Stack Trace: N/A
    .
    The problem can only occur when HCR (Hot Code Replace) is
    enabled and JSR 292 Java code is JIT compiled. Note that HCR is
    enabled and required when an agent is attached.
    

Local fix

  • The issue can be avoided by disabling HCR with the option
    -XX:-EnableHCR.
    Note that HCR is required for java agents so the workaround is
    incompatible with the use of a java agent.
    

Problem summary

  • When the JVM attempts to compile methods containing JSR 292
    calls with incorrect types and HCR is enabled, the type checks
    for the JSR 292 calls will be corrupted by the addition of HCR
    infrastructure.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The JIT compiler has been updated to avoid adding HCR
    infrastructure on the relevant JSR292 calls.
