I was wondering if anyone has experienced any problems with Java 1.8?
This is the only thing that I've run into. The same applies to Java 8, but they neglected to put this in the Java 8 release notes.
This information comes from the Release notes for Java 6.
Java v6.0-5 JVM was crashing with floating invalid fault FLTINV_F if invoked through a JNI interface and the native code was compiled using the floating point option G_FLOAT.
This problem has been fixed.
Note that this fix is not enabled by default, a logical JAVA$FORCE_IEEE_FPSR has to be defined to make use of it.
For example, to use this fix in current process define it process wide - $ define JAVA$FORCE_IEEE_FPSR “1”
Likewise, if you want to use the logical JAVA$FORCE_IEEE_FPSR system-wide define it system wide.
$ define/system JAVA$FORCE_IEEE_FPSR “1”
Restart JVM after setting or resetting this logical.
