C++ program with purify crashes

Posted on 2010-09-17

Hi,

I am running a C++ program which uses JNI. It works fine on a normal run.

When I compile with purify option, somewhere along the way (maybe when it makes the JNI call) it crashes.

Is this a known problem? I need to use purify so that I can check for leaks.

My Env :

Linux SuSe10
g++ 4.4.3 compiler
PurifyPlus.7.0.1.0-000.M
JVM_OPTIONS: -Xms128m -Xmx1024m

If anyone has faced this, help is appreciated.

Thanks,

The JNI code will not be instrumented, which could be your problem (all the dynamic libraries required for initial program load will be IIRC). I would verify where the crash occurs by debugging with gdb before proceeding much further.
A possibility might be to write a stub for JNI - after all you don't want to verify the Java Run Machine, only you C++ program.
