How do i make multiple sequential calls to jvm from same process

Hi I have 2 questions

1. I have tried to make multiple calls to jni_CreateJavaJVM and DestroyJVM within a C function.

This only works when I call the C function several times from a shellscript.  

I want to call the function several times from a C process though, but the CreateJVM fails with the error:
the Java HotSpot Server VM does not support Signal-chaining.  (I believe there's a known problem unloading the JVM when DestroyJVM is called) so...

I have now made the JNIEnv var static and initialised it to NULL.  I test to see if it's null now before creating the JVM - it gets past this step now but fails at NewStringUTF.... any ideas?  see attached code.  (I have commented and uncommented DestroyJVM but it's made no difference)

here's the backtrace:

2. - my second question is ... how can I catch the JVM errors?... my catch(...) doesn't seem to catch any of them and the jvm crashes

Thanks in advance

Hi I've figured out it's not possible (or at least not easy) to call JNI_CreateJavaJVM multiple times from the same process.

Here's what I've done... put JNIEnv, JavaVM etc.. into a C++ class ClassLoader

I declare this class as static and intialise it to null from my C function.

static ClassLoader classLoader = NULL;

if (classLoader== NULL)
    classLoader = new ClassLoader();

Then for all processes (not just the one that grabbed ClassLoader first):
AttachCurrentThread
--call findClass, callstaticMethod etc
DetachCurrentThread after callstaticMethod.

The DestroyJVM call is in the ClassLoader destructor.

---
This now creates the JVM and I can trace through the java calls, but now I'm having problems with the java methods parsing some xml ........ this is the error:

Exception [java.lang.Exception: javax.xml.parsers.DocumentBuilder cannot be created or instantiated: Provider weblogic.xml.jaxp.RegistryDocumentBuilderFactory not found

I can see this class in a weblogic.jar file  that's in the same location as the jar that's calling it?

should I post this elsewhere now the previous problem is sorted or is it somewhat related?

thanks

Problem solved.

Removed Attach and Detach Threads.

In ClassLoader constructor, call the following methods:

1. CreateJavaVM  
2. FindClass
3. GetMethodID
Can only call 1) once per process, even though calls are sequential.  
I found that I can only call 2&3) once per process otherwise classpath got messed up.

then just call the static method multiple times, don't bother about the FindClass and GetMethodID - values already set  in the first call.
