      Description

      FULL PRODUCT VERSION :
      openjdk version "1.7.0-internal"
      OpenJDK Runtime Environment (build 1.7.0-internal-marco_2012_06_01_11_35-b00)
      OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 23.2-b03, mixed mode)

      Also tried with:

      java version "1.7.0_04"
      Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.7.0_04-b21)
      Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 23.0-b21, mixed mode)

      ADDITIONAL OS VERSION INFORMATION :
      Darwin Kernel Version 11.4.0 :xnu-1699.26.8~1/RELEASE_X86_64 x86_64

      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
      If a process is executing inside the sandbox environment it will not be able to create child processes. All calls to Runtime.getRuntime().exec() will fail.

      According to Apple documentation, the child process does not automatically inherit the entitlements of the parent unless it is spawn using posix_spawn.

      REGRESSION. Last worked in version 6u31

      STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
      Compile the code given below.
      Create an entitlements file to activate the sandbox
      Create and sign an application bundle (.app).
      Run the application
      See the error report in Console.app

      EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
      EXPECTED -
      I expect no errors.
      ACTUAL -
      Crash because of denied read access to /dev/fd

      REPRODUCIBILITY :
      This bug can be reproduced always.

      ---------- BEGIN SOURCE ----------
      import java.io.IOException;

      public class RuntimeTest {

          public static void main(String[] args) {
              try {
                  Runtime.getRuntime().exec("ls");
              } catch(IOException ex) {
              }
          }
      }

      ---------- END SOURCE ----------

      CUSTOMER SUBMITTED WORKAROUND :
      None in Java. Writing some native code that uses NSTask and wrap it with JNI seems to work.
