Support for Java7


I just downloaded the 8.0.x EA (m11) and it fails to start when running on Java7 (64bit jdk, Linux x64)

When I run bin/gs-agent.sh it outputs the following on the console:

When running bin/gsc.sh directly it seems start properly, so the problem is most likely in the agent or some bootstrap code.

PS. I tried 1 hour ago the latest terracotta and it too failed to run with Java7 (complained about unsupported JVM vendor).. what a coincidence =)

I tried to reproduce it with java 7 b89 on Linux/Windows 64 without any success.
I succeeded to reproduce it with b123 but also when running java -version I got this error:

Error occurred during initialization of VM
java/lang/NoClassDefFoundError: java/lang/Object

Hi there,

I've got the same problem but I don't think it's related to Java7 as I'm running:

java -version java version "1.6.0_22" Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_22-b04-307-10M3261) Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 17.1-b03-307, mixed mode)

on Mac OS X.

Part of my output is:

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: com/gigaspaces/internal/utils/OutputJVMVersion [gsm][3/] Caused by: java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: com.gigaspaces.internal.utils.OutputJVMVersion [gsm][3/] at java.net.URLClassLoader$1.run(URLClassLoader.java:202) [gsm][3/] at java.security.AccessController.doPrivileged(Native Method) [gsm][3/] at java.net.URLClassLoader.findClass(URLClassLoader.java:190) [gsm][3/] at java.lang.ClassLoader.loadClass(ClassLoader.java:307) [gsm][3/] at sun.misc.Launcher$AppClassLoader.loadClass(Launcher.java:301) [gsm][3/] at java.lang.ClassLoader.loadClass(ClassLoader.java:248) [gsm][3/] Cannot locate gs-boot.jar in the expected directory structure, exiting

I guess it's just some kind of classpath propagation error as starting the gsm and gsc directly works fine.

Best regards, Michael

From some reason the gigaspaces root/bin/setenv.sh script cannot call the OutputJVMVendorVersion. What I suggest is to set the JAVA_VERSION manually to "1.6" and JAVA_VENDOR to "Sun" by changing the script. Make sure your JAVA_HOME is set correctly to a valid Sun JVM (not JRE).
