I have installed 64-bit JDK in AIX 5.3 64-bit. Here is the info:

# /usr/java14_64/bin/java -fullversion    
java full version "J2RE 1.4.2 IBM AIX 5L for PowerPC (64 bit JVM) build caix64142sr1aifx-20051020 (SAP 142SR1a + 88494 + 84428 + 83602 + 89528 + 90372 + 88233 + 66827 + 92741 + 95636 + 96556 + 96581)"

But when I try java -version, it throws the following error:

# /usr/java14_64/bin/java -version
Segmentation fault(coredump)

Please help me to fix this. I will award 500 point for this problem. Thanks in advance.

Are you sure you downloaded the correct JDK?

Yes. I have unisntalled and reintalled it. Well, this JDK is SAP specific. (IBM Java 1.4.2 for SAP Customers
IBM SDK for AIX on 64-bit iSeries / pSeries)  https://www14.software.ibm.com/webapp/iwm/web/reg/download.do?source=javasap&S_PKG=aix142-1SAP1

This one works fine in other AIX 5.3 systems in our office. Any idea why this error occurs? Thanks.

was the installation proper as per the instructions of IBM, did you had the required OS resource level when you installed.

i.e they have some kind of patch ups. did you had the correct system patch.

Hello, this problem is finally fixed. I spoke to IBM tech support and they identified the problem that there is a bug in the level version of C++ runtime (which we are using) that doesn’t work on this 64-bit Java SDK. So, they advised us to lower the version to (or lower) to fix this. I have lowered the C++ level to by doing a force overwrite on our server and the 64-bit Java started working now. Thanks for your support.
