The compiler which comes with the 32-bit JDK and the compiler which comes with the 64-bit JDK is identical. They should also produce identical class files.1 person found this helpful
What is more likely is that your application cannot find the 64-bit compiler. I vaguely remember that is you configure a random path, it just reutrns null for the compiler (no error) So if you use the reference without checking for null, you will get an NPE.
Tks peter that actually fixed my initial problem. But I actually identifed another in the same code. Since I'm using eclipse which uses javaw to execute the program which has no console attached to it would it cause a NPE at the point of DiagnosticCollector?
