Excelsior JET 4.5 Maintenance Pack 3 Download

NOTE: This Maintenance Pack has been superceded by Maintenance Pack 4, which is now the recommended download.

Excelsior JET 4.5 Maintenance Pack 3 (MP3) is an highly recommended update that fixes multiple customer issues. It supersedes Maintenance Pack 2 and incorporates all hotfixes you may have received from Excelsior Technical Support prior to September 7, 2006.

WARNING: Maintenance Packs fix particular problems reported by Excelsior JET users and discovered by Excelsior test engineers after the release of the respective version of the product. They are tested on a representative subset of the test suite used during preparation of the original release. We therefore only recommend you to install Maintenance Packs in the following cases:

  • You have been advised to do so by an Excelsior support engineer;
  • You need to switch to a Java SE (micro)version supported through a Maintenance Pack;
  • You want to try a new technology from Excelsior that requires installation of a particular Maintenance Pack; or
  • You are experiencing a severe problem, such as compiler or application crash or incorrect application behavior.

Release Notes

The most important issues resolved in Excelsior JET 4.5 Maintenance Pack 3 are as follows:

    JET-2471: Fix for bug: DEP causes JET runtime error or NullPointerException when JIT-generated code executes and JIT caching is not enabled

    Windows Specific

    JET-2134: Fix for hang during application exit if HP tools are installed

    JET-2482: Fix for NullPointerException/runtime error #3 on systems with DEP enabled

Installation Instructions

MP3 installs on top of the original Excelsior JET 4.5, possibly with previous hotfixes applied. If you need to make a fresh installation, install Excelsior JET 4.5 first, cancel JET Setup, and apply MP3.

To update an existing Excelsior JET installation, launch the downloaded executable and follow the on-line prompts. Upon successful copying of Maintenance Pack files, JET Setup will launch automatically and apply the Maintenance Pack.

Profile Management

Installation of MP3 does not obsolete your current profiles.

Update Management


To rollback to the previous update level, select Manage JET Updates in Excelsior JET Start Menu and click Undo.

Rollback does not remove the installed updates and associated profiles, so you can reapply MP3 later without installing it. Select Manage JET Updates and click Redo until it displays the current configuration as "jet-450-mp3".


  1. Run JET Setup to display the list of installed updates:
      jetsetup -show-updates
  2. Locate in the list the updates which you need to activate. Then run JET Setup again as follows:
      jetsetup -activate-update list

    where list is a colon-separated list of update names.

  3. Display the list of profiles available for the new combination of updates: jetsetup -show-profiles
  4. If necessary, create new profiles.
