OSX + intellij + 1.4.1 compile issue. Works in command line

When trying to compile using intellij and 1.4.1 as a target i get

HotSpot not at correct Virtual address. Sharing disabled
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.ClassNotFoundException -verbose
at java.lang.Class.forName0(Native Method)
at java.lang.Class.ForName(Class.java:140)
at com.intellij.rt.compiler.JavacRunner.main(JavacRunner.java:24)
Error:The compiler did not terminate normall. Exit code is 1

The code will compile and run outside of intellij using 1.4.1 or using intellij at jdk 1.3.1


anyone know how to fix this

Here is what the command line looks like


/System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Versions/1.4.1/Home/bin/javac Test.java
HotSpot not at correct virtual address. Sharing disabled.


then back to command prompt

I had exactly this problem when I first tried IDEA 3.0. I wish I could
say what fixed it, but I can't. I re-installed a couple times, and
tried different ways of telling it about my 1.4.1 JVM, and one of those
things must have worked, because now I'm compiling fine.

Yep, we here also cannot reproduce the problem - everything compiles ok on our Mac.

well if two of us have had the same problem then there is something wrong. everything compiles fine from the command line so it's definatly an idea problem. it looks like idea is having trouble finding a class that it's using for the compiler

please post line 24 of file

com.intellij.rt.compiler.JavacRunner.main

that is where the problem is and if i can see what class.forname it's doing it may help me identify the problem

This is a Class.forName() call: for 1.3.x and 1.4.x the JavacRunner loads "com.sun.tools.javac.Main" and for other jdk versions
"sun.tools.javac.Main".

I've had this issue crop up on me as well. I don't really know how it comes about, but I know that when I was using #691, after a few crashes (there was a bug already filed about arrow key movement which always caused a crash), I would get this same error.

The only thing that fixed the problem was re-installing DP8. Not an ideal solution, but it worked.

i reinstalled dp8 and the developer tools and it still didn't work. I may try again :(

I added in the classes directory the jar file classes.jar which contains sun.tools.javac.Main since it was looking for that and it was not already added. this did not work

Could anyone explain what is "Sharing" in the error message and how this feature works?

"System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Versions/1.4.1/Home/bin/javac Test.java
HotSpot not at correct virtual address. Sharing disabled."

Yes, the OSX JVM loads certain classes once (bootstrap one), if the default bootstrap path isn't modified. This is so that consecutive JVM launches are much faster since most of the core classes are in a cache of some sort.

The message shows up when running OSX 10.2.3 with DP8 due to 10.2.3 upgrading a library that the JVM uses, so the JVM detects that it's bootpath is altered from what it expects, and so disabled sharing. This is address in the next DP apparently (due out Real Soon Now, I'd imagine).

Since I run into the issue with 10.2.3/DP8 and #691 I switched to loglevel DEBUG and checked with 1.3.1 and 1.4.1.

Somehow the Hotspot message prohibits a proper javac call. Whenever I add the JDK as target JDK the Hotspot message will be used as JDK name (instead of jdk x.x.x). Also, MacOS X does not have a tools.jar, the compiler classes should be in classes.jar.

I get the error message as my compiler version also, but once I moved the classes.jar as described above everything compiles fine.
