        Description

        FULL PRODUCT VERSION :
        $ java -version
        java version "1.8.0_60"
        Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_60-b27)
        Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.60-b23, mixed mode)

        ADDITIONAL OS VERSION INFORMATION :
        $ uname -a
        SunOS solaris 5.11 11.2 i86pc i386 i86pc

        $ uname -a
        Linux version 2.6.32-504.el6.x86_64

        64 Bit linux (No longer have access to machine)

        A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
        Here is a minimal test case running on Oracle Solaris:

        $ uname -a
        SunOS solaris 5.11 11.2 i86pc i386 i86pc
        $ java -version
        java version "1.8.0_60-ea"
        Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_60-ea-b25)
        Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.60-b23, mixed mode)
        $ cat LambdaSleep.java
        import java.util.Arrays;

        public class LambdaSleep {
            public static void main(String[] args) throws InterruptedException {
        String[] words = new String[] { "longer", "short" };
        Arrays.sort(words, (first, second) ->
        Integer.compare(first.length(), second.length()));
        Thread.sleep(300000);
            }
        }
        $ javac LambdaSleep.java
        $ java LambdaSleep &
        [1] 4528

        I took two hprof heap dumps of this program. The first, live4528.hprof, comes
        from the live process:

        $ jmap -dump:format=b,file=live4528.hprof 4528
        Dumping heap to /export/home/basil/live4528.hprof ...
        Heap dump file created

        The second, core4528.hprof, comes from a core dump:

        $ gcore 4528
        gcore: core.4528 dumped
        $ jmap -dump:format=b,file=core4528.hprof /opt/jdk/bin/java core.4528
        Attaching to core core.4528 from executable /opt/jdk/bin/java, please wait...
        Debugger attached successfully.
        Server compiler detected.
        JVM version is 25.60-b23
        Dumping heap to core4528.hprof ...
        Heap dump file created

        With the fix for JDK-8044416 in place, the heap dump is generated without any
        exceptions (which is an improvement), but it is still not usable in any
        meaningful way.

        While live4528.hprof loads in Eclipse MAT, core4528.hprof fails to load in
        Eclipse MAT with the following exception:

        !ENTRY org.eclipse.core.jobs 4 2 2015-08-06 08:32:45.883
        !MESSAGE An internal error occurred during: "Parsing heap dump from
        'core4528.hprof'".

        at org.eclipse.core.internal.jobs.Worker.run(Worker.java:55)

        While both live4528.hprof and core4528.hprof load in VisualVM, attempting to
        find objects by retained size in VisualVM hangs on "Computing retained
        sizes..." for core4528.hprof, while this operation succeeds for
        live4528.hprof.

        When lambdas are not in use, the above problem is not manifest. Clearly there
        is a difference in the hprof heap dump generated from the core file compared
        to the one generated from the live process.

        This bug is also captured by Eclipse bug 476262 [1]. According to the comments
        on this bug, this error is reproducible on Windows (version unspecified).

        According to a stack overflow question [2], this bug has also been encountered
        on Linux version 2.6.32-504.el6.x86_64.

        EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
        EXPECTED -
        The expected result is that an hprof generated from a core file of a Java 8 program utilizing lambdas would load in Eclipse MAT without throwing an exception. Additionally, VisualVM should be able to calculate the retained sizes for Java objects using the hprof.
        ACTUAL -
        The hprof of the given Java 8 program, generated from a
        core file, fails to load in Eclipse MAT with the following exception:

        !ENTRY org.eclipse.core.jobs 4 2 2015-08-06 08:32:45.883
