        Description

        Java on Windows will only generate a crash dump, when running with
        -XX:+ShowMessageErrorOnBox. Any other windows application however, will
        create a crash dump upon each and every crash.

        Running Java with -XX:+ShowMessageErrorOnBox does yield a windows dump
        file, however it suppresses the creation of an hs_err_pid.log file. On
        Unix (Solaris and Linux), both a crash dump (core file) and an hs_err_pid.log
        file are generated at one time.

        So, the proposal is:
        Is it possible to get both crash dump and hs_err_pid.log file on Windows
        platforms at one time (possibly without using -XX:+ShowMessageErrorOnBox).
        The crash dump file will be generated depending on Dr Watson being installed.


        Here is an example: Please find attached a complete example.

        It is supposed than Dr Watson is installed.

        1. native testcase
        ------------------
        1.1 Testcase
        ------------
        % more Hello.c

        #include <stdio.h>
        int main() {
          char str1[]="Sample string";
          char * str2= NULL;
          strcpy(str2, str1);
            return;
        }
        %

        1.2. run native testcase
        ------------------------
        It will crash and generate a crash dump.
        Compile with Borland's bcc32 (for example):

        C:>


        C:>hello

        [ hello.exe has generated errors and will be closed by Windows.
          You will need to restart the program.

          An error log is being created.

         [OK]
        ]

        drwtsn32.log and user.dmp has been created.



        C:>more drwtsn32.log

        3. Try a JNI testcase based on the above example
        ------------------------------------------------

        C:>


        3.2 Run without -XX:+ShowMessageBoxOnError
        ------------------------------------------

        C:>c:\j2sdk1.4.2\bin\java HelloWorld

        An unexpected exception has been detected in native code outside the VM.
        Unexpected Signal : EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION (0xc0000005) occurred at PC=0x182
        722BA
        Function=Java_HelloWorld_displayHelloWorld+0x1082
        Library=C:\test\HelloWorldImp.dll
        [ ... ]

         Please note that *no* crash dump file is be created.



        3.3 Run with -XX:+ShowMessageBoxOnError
        ---------------------------------------

        C:>c:\j2sdk1.4.2\bin\java -XX:+ShowMessageBoxOnError HelloWorld

        [ An error has occurred. Do you want to debug the problem ?
          [Yes] [No]
        ]

         Choose "No" and you will get an hs_err_pid.log file.

         Choose "Yes" and you will get:

        [ java.exe has generated errors and will be closed by Windows.
          You will need to restart the program.

          An error log is being created.

         [OK]
        ]

         Both a crash dump file and a drwtsn32.log file will be generated, but *no*
         hs_err_pid.log file.
