We have a java application running with multiple JNI Libraries.  Everything is fine on NT with the Java 1.3.0_02 JVM.  On Solaris we recieve "Fatal System Error: Raise at top of Exception Stack"  from within the java code.   If we try debugging under "jdb" everything works as expected.  If we run with "-Xint" specified to java again everything runs fine.  However this is not an option due to performance reasons.  Also note that this error is produced seemingly randomly, ie: not always at the same point of execution.

Again our problem involves JNI calls.  Specifically going to C programs
that do PDF conversion stuff.

environment is:

solaris 5.8 Generic_108528-04 sun4u sparc SUNW,Ultra-250
jdk  1.3.1-rc2-b23

EVALUATION It was found that the customer's application's native code installs signal handlers for SIGILL, etc. The signal-chaining part 2 work should help in this case. Customer is now trying the fix. mingyao.yang@Eng 2001-05-16 Close as a duplicate of 4381843. See the evaluation of that bug. This bug should be fixed by the part (2) work of signal-chaining. mingyao.yang@Eng 2001-06-12
