Is anyone else having instability issues running a Swing app accessing Oracle on Mac OSX? We developed a product that is now unusable on the Mac OSX because it is too unstable.
Here is a more detailed description of the problem:
I have a Java Swing application running on Mac OS X version 10.2.6.
The application is a very standard Swing application with a
JTabbedPane with JPanels in it - some JDialogs for editing stuff, and
JOptionPanes for showing messages etc., etc. The application does
talk to an Oracle Database and is pretty 'chatty' throughout.
The problem is the application is very unstable - it, seemingly,
randomly crashes the vm when using the app - a discernable pattern
cannot seen. There is also some other funny behaviour in that
JDialogs will popup - seemingly randomly, and they cannot be closed.
The application was developed and compiled on a PC Java version
j2sdk1.4.1_02 and is rock solid on a PC - nor or there any problems
with the JDialogs.
We already have SOCKS Proxies unchecked in Network settings - as this
had caused us different problems earlier.
The message from the java console when the crash happens is:
Aug 14 14:56:57 C-W-Computer crashdump: Crash report written to:
Part (because the full dump is too big to post - so I've included
looks most significant) of the crash log itself is:

Which version of the JDK are you running? Have you updated it recently via the software updater?
