Did any of you encountered this kind of issue? Installed tomcat 6.0 and 7.0 and both won't stay running. As far as I can tell, this is not a port issue...here is the error:

#
# A fatal error has been detected by the Java Runtime Environment:
#
# EXCEPTION_ILLEGAL_INSTRUCTION (0xc000001d) at pc=0x000000000123cdae, pid=5868, tid=3904
#
# JRE version: 6.0_20-b02
# Java VM: Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (16.3-b01 mixed mode windows-amd64 )
# Problematic frame:
# J org.apache.tomcat.util.IntrospectionUtils.setProperty(Ljava/lang/Object;Ljava/lang/String;Ljava/lang/String;Z)Z
#
# If you would like to submit a bug report, please visit:

I also submitted a bug report for this issue:

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks,

Welcome to the JavaRanch, Alex!

What you have is a defective JVM. This is not a Tomcat problem.

No Java program should ever crash the JVM. The JVM design does not permit that. Unfortunately, no software is perfect, and certain JVM releases when used in certain ways to trigger their own internal bugs and crash.

The only cure is to obtain a different JVM and use that one to run Tomcat, instead.

It doesn't always have to be a newer JVM version, just a different version, since the bugs usually don't repeat between releases.

Hi Tim,

I will try with a different JVM and see how it goes.

Thanks,

I'm not so sure.

Any "NullPointerException" from native code can cause the JVM to crash like this. This native code can be the JVM but it can also be any third party code.
