    Hi:

    Any response for that.
    I have exactly the same problem in Solaris.

    Thanks in advance.

    user4815182 ,

    You should start a new thread. The thread you added to was posted in 2007.

    Also, what I would recommend is that you go to http://java.sun.com/webapps/bugreport/crash.jsp and follow the steps there, adding flags etc, to help identify or even solve the issue you are seeing.

    The initial post indicated that they are using 1.4.2, which is super old. Bugs are fixed in releases that have higher numbers. I recommend that you run, or at least try, to run with the latest 1.7 release. The downloads can be found here: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/index.html

    If you you are convinced that you need 1.4.2, or there are other issues seen with 1.7, a more recent 1.4.2 release can be found in the archive. Please note that security vulnerabilities are fixed with each release. As 1.4.2 has reached the End of Public Releases, there has not been a new public release in a long time. Current 1.4.2 releases with vulnerabilities fixes can be obtained through a support contract http://www.oracle.com/us/technologies/java/standard-edition/support/overview/index.html.
    That said, you can still access the Download Archive: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/archive-139210.html .
