Java application crashes due to some problem in native code

Hi All

I have a Java application that calls APIs in a 3rd party DLL(I don't have access to its source code or logs) through my VC++ DLL(Win32) that acts as the wrapper DLL.

The Application has many functionalities and is based on multithreading (both on Java layer as well as C++ layer). Most of the functionalities are working , but when I try to close the application, it crashes.

Moreover the crashing occurs inconstently, sometimes it does not crash. Instead of showing any debug information , it simply creates a error file with disassembly code that I am not able to understand.

Though the error seems like an java error, but actually it seems to be due to native code. I have try catch blocks in my code and also implemented _set_translator functionality to get hold of structured/C exceptions. But still I am not able to catch any exceptions.

I am pasting the the contents of the file here:

# An unexpected error has been detected by HotSpot Virtual Machine:
# EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION (0xc0000005) at pc=0x7c9111de, pid=488, tid=1848

vm_info: Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (1.4.2_14-b05) for windows-x86, built on Mar 14 2007 16:46:11 by "java_re" with MS VC++ 6.0

The JAVA Application during initialisation establishes a connection with the host server for various devices. For each of the device it establishes a separate connection and keeps listening on these connections using multithreading.

During App close, we need to close each of these connections one by one for each device.

The opening /closing of connection is done by 3rd party DLL and call to there APIs is done through a C++ Wrapper DLL that I have built between the Java layer and their DLL.

When we close the Application, I am always able to close the connections on the first 2 devices. Then all of a sudden it crashes either for the 3rd device conn. close or for the 4th one. The code is the same for all the devices . That too sometimes it just goes fine without crashing. If its a null pointer exception, why is it that it crashes on some occassions and not in other times. More importantly, why is it that it does not fail for the first 2 devices , but fails for the 3rd or 4th device connection close?

Can please anyone help me. Please suggest me as to how I can determine the cause of the error.
Thanks in advance.

There are no details to prove that the crash dump is caused by threads. In fact, it is likely to be caused by the JNI code. As such, I am moving this topic to the "Other APIs forum".

An EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION is usually caused by a "NullPointerException" in native code, or by trying to read from a memory address that has already been freed.
