This really isn't much of a certification question (this most definitely won't be on the exam), so I'm going to move this to JiG (Intermediate).

SCJP Tipline, etc.

Can you give more details - are you using shell script,what is the error code it is returning, are you catching exception and printing the stack trace?

Yeah, I am using shell script. the return code that I get back is 137 ( usually), my application is programmed to print the stack trace in a log file and it pretty much does that w/o fail, but in some situations I dont get any log , I just die , as if somebody choked my application , that's when I thought may be OS has somehow threw my JVM out for some reason.
