javaws (JVM) does not function properly / hangs (winxp guest, fedora linux host)

Reported by: caseybea Owned by:
Priority: critical Component: host support
Version: VirtualBox 2.0.6 Keywords: windows xp java jvm ebs
Cc: Guest type: Windows
Host type: Linux


Attempting to use SUN's EBS (Enterprise Backup) console - a javaws/jvm interface, does not run properly (or at all) under Windows XP as a guest host in Virtualbox.

The console "login" screen appears, but the console itself does not. The only sign of any activity is a stuck "javaw" process in Windows - trying the EBS console again creates ANOTHER "javaw" process, and so on. No error messages, nothing logged in the windows event viewer under any category.

Behavior is consistent regardless of java version (1.4, 1.5, 1.6).

(Editor note, this ought to be interesting, seeing as Sun EBS console, Virtualbox, AND Java are *all* sun products...).

This lack of functionality is a deal killer that will not allow me to permanently retire my Windows XP workstation.

Seeing as there were other similar java issues under other operating systems, I am betting this could affect many other applications.....
