Simulator crashing on Windows 7
« on: June 08, 2012, 06:30:26 pm »

I've recently got a new PC with Windows 7 and found that the Geronimoo simulator now crashes occasionally. The symptoms have intermittently been:
 - not completing a simulation, so the application & interface is still usable but cursor shows the waiting symbol.
 - freezing when running a simulation, with the interface inactive.
 - the application terminating entirely when clicking the edit button
 - once the simulator starts going wrong it continues to have problems until I restart Windows.

I'm guessing I've got a Java version problem but I have reinstalled the Java and the simulator code without improvement. I'm using the 32 bit Java version for the Chrome browser. Can anyone suggest what might be going wrong or how to fix it?

???? Are you confusing Java with Javascript?

No idea what your problem is. I run windows 7 and have no problems. Well except the really weird fringe edge cases that I got 2 of when doing the quints tournament.

I installed a java runtime environment. Do I need something different?

I have the same symptoms under WinXP. I believe they started when I upgraded to Java 1.7 (specifically I seem to be running Java 1.7.0_0.9 (which I found out via http://www.javatester.org/version.html).
WanderingWinder, what version of Java are you using on Win 7?

I think I fixed it by ditching chrome and moving to Firefox.

Interesting. I've been using Firefox all along but don't run the simulator via a browser anyway (it added itself to my start menu the first time I used it).

Perhaps someone more familiar with Java could help; are any of these possible:
  • Figure out whether it's the JVM or just the program that's crashing
  • Get a stack trace of where the crash happened
  • Restart Java (if in fact there is some piece of it running all the time) and start the simulator again. Restarting the "Java Quick Start" service does not make the problem go away

These or any other suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.
