Subject [jira] [Created] (DAEMON-281) Jsvc not loading correct shared lib for Java 7 on MacOS
Date Thu, 28 Feb 2013 19:03:14 GMT
Ian Emmons created DAEMON-281:

             Summary: Jsvc not loading correct shared lib for Java 7 on MacOS
                 Key: DAEMON-281
             Project: Commons Daemon
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Jsvc
    Affects Versions: 1.0.13
         Environment: MacOS 10.8.2 with Java 7:

$ java -version
java version "1.7.0_15"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.7.0_15-b03)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 23.7-b01, mixed mode)
            Reporter: Ian Emmons

When I try to run my program via jsvc, it complains:

Cannot find any VM in Java Home <<JAVA_HOME>>
Cannot locate JVM library file

where <<JAVA_HOME>> is set to


The -debug switch shows jsvc searching for several shared libraries in the folder


However, with Java 1.7 this folder does not exist, and jsvc should be trying to load this:


If I change JAVA_HOME to point to Apple's Java 1.6, then jsvc successfully finds the JVM shared

Note:  I built jsvc myself with no problems, and the output of the build makes it clear that
it used the Java 7 JNI headers in the compilation.

Background:  Apple has deprecated Java 1.6.  It not longer is present unless the user explicitly
installs it, and recent OS updates have disabled the browser plugin and removed the Java control
panel.  Apple is pushing customers toward's Oracle's Java 1.7.
