Can you get a stack trace? I've usually found that this message occurs
deep within the JVM in JNI code. Something has happened there that keeps
the JVM from even throwing an error. The JVM shuts down and throws off
this message. You MIGHT find something in the job log back a couple

It usually means I did something wrong in my code that is calling base
functions supplied by the JVM. But it may indicate an error that the JVM
developer needs to fix. Have you tried various JVM's?

It's probably time to call IBM, but they're going to want a stack trace.

Subject: RUNJVA in CCSID 5026 results in JVA0122 rc 1?


I'm stumped on this one ... I've got a java program that _generally_
works fine ... except if I run it in a CCSID 5026 job.

If I run it in a CCSID 37 or CCSID 5035 (which are generally compatible
regarding English characters) it runs fine.

But if I run it in a job with CCSID 5026 it ends with a JVA0122 error
with return code 1.

My program does *NOT* do a System.exit(1).

The java program is being invoked with the RUNJVA command.

I've looked at the joblog for the associated QJVACMDSRV job, but it's
not showing anything particularly useful (difficult as it was to
interpret, considering it was in Japanese).

When I invoke the RUNJVA command from the CL driver program, the values
for classpath, classname, & java.version property have been retrieved
from message files (tagged with CCSID 37) so they get transcoded to
CCSID 5026.

Although I get the same error when I run the program from the command

When I run the program with OPTION(*VERBOSE), I can see the appropriate
classes getting loaded ... but the class doesn't run.

This is on V5R4 with the classic JVM 1.5.

Any thoughts?
