Testing JDK7 build on Solaris [1], seeing this stack trace below in Tomcat's log file when trying to create content handler for "image/gif" mime type on solaris with jdk7 build:

Problem maybe platform specific, since it was not seen on Windows in awt package.  Other platforms JDK7 binaries are located at [2].


EVALUATION Component.resetGC() method was removed as a part of the fix for 6804747. However, in the same fix, resetGC native method initialization was removed from Component.initIDs(), so I don't see how the exception could be thrown (other than because of some problems with the workspace, when some source files correspond to a different hg revision than the rest of the repository).

EVALUATION I tried to reproduce the problem with desktop applications on solaris-sparc platform. The problem has not been reproduced. Is the web application publicly available? I would try to reproduce the problem with Tomcat.

EVALUATION See original description for JDK7 build used when seeing this problem. i.e. http://javaweb.sfbay.sun.com/~rp146011/jdk/jdk7-jaxws22-jprt/solaris_sparc_5.10-product.zip This is an internal Pre Integration build of JDK7, with JAXWS 2.2, and I believe JAXB2.2, integrated into it.

EVALUATION The error is really weird: I've just grepped the whole JDK7 workspace for 'resetGC' string and found 2 places in Windows code only. What JDK7 build the problem is observed with?
