    With this service pack, do I need to recompile the JRE that I'm using (via JetSetup)? Thanks

    Application Freezing

    Ok. I think I found the issue, at least for our case. Excelsior doesn't seem to like direct calls to System.gc We were manipulating large images in our app and were regularily calling System.gc to free up memory (our regular deploy was using JRE 1.1.8 ). I stripped out those calls and things seem to be running smoothly. I guess we're supposed to let Exclesior handle all the memory issues, we'll probably slide the GC ratio up a bit just to be safe.

    Application Freezing

    Our problem is fairly consistant. It happens during the same action but at random times. Ie, you can successfully perform the action (in this case switching out a panel and replacing it with a new one, fully laden with components) multiple times. Then at some point, you do the exact same action one more time, and it freezes up. It just screams AWT. I'm looking at SWT at the moment as a possible fix, but our project is very large and the switch over would require a significant overhaul at the 11th hour. Too much for a "just try it and see". Are there any additional debug options for Excelsior besides the stack trace one?

    Application Freezing

    I'm using Excelsior JET 3.15 with various versions of Java and I keep coming up with the same problem with the compiled executable. After running the application for a while the app freezes and reports Not Responding. There are no error messages given, nor does a stack trace reveal anything. I've tried recompiling with a wide variety of memory settings and have compiled used different versions of sun's JRE as well. All aspects of the application run fine, it's just after using it for a short period of time, it freezes up. I've got all the JET RT dlls included so I know I'm not missing anything. And the app runs flawlessly if run with regular Java. Anyone else run into freezing issues? Anything else I can try? On a possibly unrelated note, I can't get the app to run at all if I try to force the use of the sun JRE. It throws an untracable NULL pointer exception: java.lang.NullPointerException at java.lang.Throwable.fillInStackTrace(Unknown Source) at java.lang.Throwable.<unknown>(Unknown Source) at java.lang.Exception.<unknown>(Unknown Source) at java.lang.RuntimeException.<unknown>(Unknown Source) at java.lang.NullPointerException.<init>(Unknown Source) Any help would be appriciated.
  5. Is there a modified time frame for the next update? I'm guessing that it will contain the micro-update for the 1.3.1_09, 1.4.1_05, and 1.4.2_01 editions. Thanks for any info you can give.
