Hi Marvin or Ron,

I suspect you're getting an exception that's not caught, like maybe a
null object somewhere. Have you looked at both the Java invoking job log
and the BCI job log? The error should show up somewhere unless a program is
just gobbling it.

If you're running WAS, check all output, including the native stdout.

Subject: Why doesn't the Java Machine Start

I have a program that is suppose to use Java to create excel files.
Right now the process is bombing out with a machine error MCH74A5 with
reason code 2 which says 'A Java program called the
java.lang.System.exit method with a non zero status code of 134. We
have tried to start this program repeatedly but when it attempts to
start the Java Machine, this error occurs and we have to terminated the

Is there any documentation on this error and what it means.
