      Description

      FULL PRODUCT VERSION :
      JRE 1.5.0_06-b05

      ADDITIONAL OS VERSION INFORMATION :
      Windows XP Professional SP2

      EXTRA RELEVANT SYSTEM CONFIGURATION :
      Running Internet Explorer 6.0

      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
      This problem can best be described by looking at the reports on the Java forum here: http://forum.java.sun.com/thread.jspa?messageID=4094971

      In short, setting the applet's memory to -Xmx512M (or perhaps higher) causes this message to appear "Several Java Virtual Machines running in the same process caused an error"


      STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
      Set your applet to use -Xmx512M in Windows Control Panel, Java, Java tab, View (applet) parameters.

      EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
      EXPECTED -
      No error message should be displayed and the applet should use the memory it is told it can use if needed.
      ACTUAL -
      Error message is displayed (Several Java Virtual Machines running in the same process caused an error).


      ERROR MESSAGES/STACK TRACES THAT OCCUR :
      Several Java Virtual Machines running in the same process caused an error


      REPRODUCIBILITY :
      This bug can be reproduced always.

      CUSTOMER SUBMITTED WORKAROUND :
      None (other than to reduce the memory).
