javac can't load MacOS binaries

Type(s): Problem

Internal Occurrences (3)

  • Applies when
    • Only seems to apply to JDK 1.5 on MacOS X.
  • Description
    • Tomcat puts all files in /System/Library/Java/Extensions/ on the classpath, and javac then tries to load them as .jar files and fails when some of them turn out to be native binaries.
  • Solution
    • Remove all *.jnilib files, use JDK 1.4, or switch to the Jikes compiler.
