Cold Fusion JVM setup problem

I have a CFX tag written in Java, and it seems to work with the test harnesses. However, when moving it to my CF box, i get the following error:

Error Diagnostic Information
The JVM library could not be found. Please check if the file specified in the ColdFusion Administrator actually exists.

The error occurred while processing an element with a general identifier of (CFX_DATABASE_LOGIN), occupying document position (1:1) to (1:73) in the template file /home/pms/public_html/cftagtest/UWA_Database_Setup.cfm.


In the administrator, the JVM is set to: /usr/java/jdk1.3.1_03/jre/lib/i386/classic/libjvm.so
This file does exist, no there are no typos (i coppied and pasted it from the console to the administrator to make sure i wasnt being dumb... :)

Previously, i tried using hte JVM in /opt/coldfusion/jre/... and got same error.

the machine is a Linux Box Kernel: 2.4.2-2
Cold Fusion Pro version: 4, 5, 1, 0

Any thoughts?

instead of classis , is there any folder called hotspot under your i386 directory.

I dont know about Linux but in windows there are 2 JVm's which come with JDK.

Make sure the ColdFusion Server "User" has execute rights for the libjvm.so file.
