A licensee reported the JVM ABENDs in 1.3.1_03(-server) with Internal Error,
# Error ID: 52454C4F4341544F520E43505001DB
(This code means "src/share/vm/runtime/relocator.cpp, 475".)
Although they can not send the test code, the licensee sent the following
Their report also says this will occur in 1.4.X.(and tiger ?).
So, I filed this issue.
==== Their investigation ====
This reported issue occurs in Windows2000 and JDK1.3.1_03(-server).
However, as the following report says, that might not depend on
specific platform and JDK version.
CRASH SCENARIO :
This issue occurs at rewrite/relocate operation which is achieved at
initializing process of byte code interpreter.
According to our investigation, the source code and functions related to
the rewrite/relocate process are as follows.
- rewrite :
The rewrite operation broadens the index area of aload/astore op. code
under some condition.(To insert wide op. code and expand the 1-byte area to
When this rewrite operation occurs, the relocate occurs at the same time
in order to adjust the offset in byte-codes.
The problem occurs during the change for the branch offset value of "if"
code in relocate operation.
Specifically speaking, the branch offset value of goto/jsr can take 65535
as maximun(than's when goto_w/jsr_w is used).
However, the offset of "if" op. code can take 32767(signed int 16 bits)
as maximum value. If the length of byte code area becomes over 32767
after the above rewrite operation, there might be the case when the program
can not branch because of the offset short.
When the conversion from signed 16 bit offset to signed 32 bit offset
for each op. code like goto/jsr/if(ex. goto =>goto_w, jsr => jsr_w )
is needed and the op. code is "if", this abnormal end occurs in
Relocator::handle_jump_widen() as Internal error.
=== Their investigation End ======
We need a workaround or fix.
According to the source code of 1.4.X(and 1.5 ?), the same issue occurs
