JVM SEGV when multiple threads call TextLayout.getOutLine()

    XMLWordPrintable

    Details

    • Subcomponent:
      2d
    • CPU:
      sparc
    • OS:
      solaris_8

      Description

      Multithreaded program calling TextLayout's getOutline method for string of TrueType fonts causes the JVM to SEGV.

      The crash is repeatable, but the Java test program may need to be invoked several times in a row to cause the crash.

      Procedure for reproducing the problem:

      Log out from Solaris
      From dtlogin window, choose "Command line login"
      login as yourself.
      check that Xsun is not running (ps -ef | grep Xsun),
      log out
      When dtlogin screen reappears, log in as yourself
      In a termainal window running cshell (or modify the setenv below for your shell):
      check your version of java
      % java -version
         java version "1.2.2"
         Solaris VM (build Solaris_JDK_1.2.2_05a, native threads, sunwjit)
      % setenv JAVA2D_USEPLATFORMFONT
      % java FontStress 1

      Now repeat the next line until you get a crash (for me it took no more than 3 times):
      % java FontStress 30
      % java FontStress 30
      % java FontStress 30

      Of the these FontStress runs will result in a JVM crash:

      % java FontStress 30
      ... (text omitted, see attachment output.txt for complete output of a run)

      I have reproduced the problem under SunOS 5.6 and 5.8 (Solaris 2.6 and Solaris 8) on an Ultra60 and Ultra10 respectively.
