    Persistence.xml - JET with JPA question

    Please send an example to reproduce the problem to Support Dept. (java at excelsior-usa.com). Also send your JET project files (*.prj, *.jpn) and the Java command line that you use to start your application on the standard JRE. We will check if the settings are correct. We will examine the problem on our end and post a follow-up with the results in this topic.

    Math calculations

    Hi, As you can see in the Java SE API documentation, these 3 methods (Math.asin, Math.acos, Math.atan) need not produce the same results on different VM implementations. The only constraint is: "The computed result must be within 1 ulp of the exact result. Results must be semi-monotonic." (see http://java.sun.com/javase/6/docs/api/java/lang/Math.html#asin(double)) If you want to get the same bitwise results, you should use methods of java.lang.StrictMath instead. I have investigated the differences between JET and Sun HotSpot, compared the results with high precision (112-bit mantissa) results obtained with HPAlib library (http://www.nongnu.org/hpalib/) and confirm that JET implementation of these methods is correct according to java.lang.Math specification. Regards, Pavel Pavlov.

    SWT support without application launcher?

    Hi, What do you mean by 'application launchers'? If by 'SWT applications with application launchers' you mean SWT applications based on OSGi/Eclipse RCP, then read the answer below: Starting from version 6.5, Excelsior JET Enterprise Edition supports AOT compilation of Eclipse RCP applications. As regards to SWT applications which are not based on OSGi/Eclipse RCP runtime they are supported by Excelsior JET as well as any other plain Java SE applications. To compile plain Java SE application with JET you should first setup JET project either with JET Launcher http://www.excelsior-usa.com/doc/jet650/jetw004.html#0034 or with JET Control Panel http://www.excelsior-usa.com/doc/jet650/jetw005.html#0037 (select 'Plain Java SE application' on the Welcome Screen) Regards, Pavel

    Hello, First of all, we have never encountered such errors before. We have looked at JET runtime code which reports "RegisterClassEx failed" error and found that such situation is definitely not a bug in JET. It may happen because of erroneous OS behavior or influence of 3rd-party system tools. It seems that this version of Norton Antivirus afects JET-compiled programs negatively. To get the application to work please ask user to install other antivirus software. Also he can try to re-install JET-compiled application. Regards, Pavel

    share native complilation

    Hello, The operating systems do not work in this way, instead they can share code and data between processes.

    Installation blocks!! jet-450-eval-en-win32.exe

    Hello, Are you sure that you correctly wrote the file name "C:/jet-eval-en-15-1.5.0_06.pjp"? It seems very strange - installer should not create any files in C:/ root directory. Have you seen the small window with the text "Finishing setup. Please wait..." at the end of installation? Do you have any active anti-virus monitors on your machine? Also please check that you have enough free space (at least 500-700 Mb) on your hard drive.

    share native complilation

    Hello, The code and data in executables and dynamic libraries (DLL/.so) produced by Excelsior JET are shared among different processes, so you need not do anything special for it. Regards.

    classdefNotFound problem

    Hello, Can you send us your application (or some part of it where the problem is reproducible) with an scenario to how to reproduce the problem? Please send your defect reports to Excelsior JET Support Team: java@excelsior-usa.com Thanks

    Runtime error #19000(trap) in JET

    Hello, It is stack overflow in non-Java method i.e. in native or some auxiliary thread. You can try to increase stack size for your application (in LaunchPad at page "Options" tab "Advanced"). If it will not help - please write what version of Excelsior JET are you using? What OS are you using? Please provide its exact version, names of updates applied, etc. If the OS is Linux, also send us its kernel version, glibc version, the output of command "uname -a". Also, please, explain how we can reproduce the problem. It would be very helpful if you send us a sample program reproducing the crash.

    EXE setup file size too big...

    Hello, With the current version of Excelsior JET there is no way to reduce the download size. Due to Sun license restrictions, Java platform API (and thus JET runtime DLLs) cannot be subset even though its large parts are not used by the application. In other words, smart linking like that for C/C++ cannot help. Please note that we are currently working on the download size reduction. The next version 4.5 of Excelsior JET gives a solution to reduce the download size. JET4.5 features a new build mode, which allows to compile application classes together with the required Java platform classes into a single executable. The platform classes that were not compiled are packaged into a jar and then effectively compressed. This new build mode can improve application start up time and performance, reduce the download size. Please take a look at the following numbers: Sizes of packages to be delivered to customers (complete Java SE 5.0 implementation were used): SwingSet2 11MB SwtExample 10MB jAlbum 16MB You can try this new feature in JET 4.5 beta http://www.excelsior-usa.com/beta.html. For more information, see <http://www.excelsior-usa.com/jetroadmap.html>. However, package size of 1MB is absolutely impossible for standalone application (i.e. independent of JRE presence on the target machine) with the current Sun's license policy. Regards, Pavel

    Garbage Collection and Out Of Memory

    Hello, We have no ideas why it occurs. So the only thing we can offer is to try to reproduce it and to debug it by ourselves. We can do that locally or via remote access. So we can propose you two options: 1. Provide us with the application bytecode, input data and scenario on which the problem can be reproduced. We may sign a non-disclosure agreement on request. We do not need the full application and real data. If the problem can be reproduced on a scaled down version of the application and/or on some "fake" data, that would be sufficient. 2. Set up remote access so that we could run the application under the debugger right on the client's system. We may sign a non-disclosure agreement on request. Regards, Pavel

    Out of Memory at running time application

    Hello, -Xmx analogue in JET is jet.gc.heaplimit runtime property. You can set it at application launch time by setting JETVMPROP environment variable (it will affect all JET-compiled applications on user's machine) or by running the application through batch file like this: ----------------------------------- SET JETVMPROP=-Djet.gc.heaplimit:100m App.exe arg1 arg2 ----------------------------------- Please look there to find more information about JET runtime properties: http://www.excelsior-usa.com/doc/jet410/jetw007.html#0238 and ways to specify them: http://www.excelsior-usa.com/doc/jet410/jetw007.html#0237 Regards, Pavel

    Evaluation version restriction???

    Hello, NoClassDefFoundError was a bug in evaluation version of xFunction. You can re-download xFunction from the website to get the fixed version. As regards to calling functions with three-parameters, you are right - it's restriction of evaluation version. Unfortunately, we have no evalution version without this restriction. If you absolutely cannot test xFunction without such restriction then I recommend you to buy a license and to request refund if you'll find the product inappropriate for your needs. Regards, Pavel.

    xFuntion newcomer

    Hello, The signature of the function you need is: BOOL WINAPI SetProcessWorkingSetSize( HANDLE hProcess, SIZE_T dwMinimumWorkingSetSize, SIZE_T dwMaximumWorkingSetSize ); As HANDLE and SIZE_T are both 32-bits wide in WIN32 you should use this signature in xFunction: "int SetProcessWorkingSetSize (int, int, int)" Regards, Pavel
  17. Hello, Yes, it's true: http://www.excelsior-usa.com/pr20040923.html Thank you for your interest in Excelsior products. Regards, Pavel.

    Compiling Eclipse Plug-In AOT

    Not at all. Quite opposite: use of dynamic classloader force you to use JIT cache DLLs. However these JIT cache DLLs differ from ordinary DLLs: JIT cache DLLs require original classes to be loaded. All classes referenced from already loaded classes will be cached and compiled together with these loaded classes. Such routine should be classloader-specific: For any custom classloader used in the application, an individual routine should exist that loads only those classes which might be loaded by the classloader. Regards, Pavel

    Compiling Eclipse Plug-In AOT

    Hello, Unfortunately, this feature will not be implemented in the next release (JET 4.5) and we are not sure about its availability in the following JET version. However, we are keeping in mind such special support for Eclipse plugins and we would like to find some resources to allocate for work on this feature during this year . By the way, you can check out Excelsior JET Roadmap to get some info on following JET releases: http://www.excelsior-usa.com/jetroadmap.html Regards, Pavel
  20. Hello, Can you provide us a sample demonstrating this misbehavior? In general, we cannot investigate an issue in a large application based just on a error message or verbal description of the misbehavior. We need to find the exact place in the application's code that works incorrectly, and track it down to a problem in the JET compiler, in the JET runtime, or in the application itself (yes, we had such cases). In order to do that, we need to be able to reproduce the problem.

    Long filename problem

    Hello, There is a limitation of 260 characters for the file path in Windows. Excelsior JET stores its temporary files (*.sym, *.bod, *.obj) with the names based on the class names. Note, that uppercase characters are mangled with the tilde character ('~'), to avoid file names collision, as the Java class names are case-sensitive, and Windows file system is case-insensitive. We have plans to reimplement this functionality and change the naming scheme to less error-prone one. But now we have a tight schedule for JET4.5 and I have no idea when this issue will be resolved. As for now, you can try to use work directory with a shorter path for compilation of your application with JET.
