While running a java program on a unix platform with Solaris I get the following error -

There was an error trying to initialize the HPI library.
Please check your installation, HotSpot does not work correctly when installed in the JDK 1.2 Solaris Production Release, or with any JDK 1.1.x release.

Does anyone have any idea what the problem might be?

 You need a libhpi.so library in the J2SE binary installation specified by your JAVA_HOME environment variable. The library should be at $JAVA_HOME/jre/lib/<arch>/native_threads/libhpi.so.

   Hope it helps.

 Since you are running Solaris on a Unix box then it should be: $JAVA_HOME/jre/lib/sparc/native_threads/libhpi.so

 ... and can also go to the jre/lib/sparc/native_threads directory of your bootstrap installation (if you are running solaris on a non-unix box you will need to substitute the sparc with i386) and create the following symbolic link:

ln -s libhpi.so libhpi_g.so

  Hope it helps.
