Hi, All!
Please would you provide your ideas on what could cause such behavior.

I have very simple model, and orm mapping. Two classes, Book and Writer, one Book contains reference to Writer, and Writer contains collection of books he wrote:

<orm:entity-mappings xmlns:orm="" version="2.1">
  <orm:entity class="org.eclipse.emf.texo.test.model.samples.library.Book" name="Book">
      <orm:basic name="title" optional="true"/>
      <orm:basic name="pages" optional="true"/>
      <orm:basic name="category" optional="true">
      <orm:many-to-one name="author" optional="false" target-entity="org.eclipse.emf.texo.test.model.samples.library.Writer">
  <orm:entity class="org.eclipse.emf.texo.test.model.samples.library.Writer" name="Writer">
      <orm:basic name="name" optional="true"/>
      <orm:one-to-many name="books" target-entity="org.eclipse.emf.texo.test.model.samples.library.Book">
        <orm:join-table name="Writer_books"/>

Then I just try to get EntityManager to be used later, the following code is performed:

    Map properties = new HashMap();
    EntityManagerFactory emf = Persistence.createEntityManagerFactory(PERSISTENCE_UNIT_NAME,

    EntityManager em = emf.createEntityManager();

and I have the exception provided below.

Be noticed when I commented reference to Writer from Book entity - everything works ok for me. Another thing is when I tried to debug - everything again works nice. So this is an issue I have when running this code in runtime e.g. under tomcat in servlet environment, as junit test and as java standalone application.

Eclipse helios is used, and last (2.1.0.v20100614-r7608) version of EclipseLink.

Also EclipseLink is installed as plugin to Eclipse environment.

Another thing to mention. As it was stated, it was not about debug. But, if at debug just have a breakpoint at some line, and then jyst press f8 (continue to run) - then again this thing appears.

But if continue to debug line by line - all is ok.

I have such impression it is something related to speed of running, and could related class loaders (which are changed inside eclipse link widely) or may be asm framework manipulations?

Another thing I have mentioned is if to see at exception trace

j org.eclipse.persistence.mappings.CollectionMapping.addDescen dingOrdering(Ljava/lang/String;)V+11
j org.eclipse.persistence.mappings.ObjectReferenceMapping.hasC onstraintDependency()Z+1
J org.eclipse.persistence.internal.sessions.CommitOrderDepende ncyNode.recordMappingDependencies()V
v ~RuntimeStub::alignment_frame_return Runtime1 stub
j org.eclipse.persistence.internal.sessions.CommitOrderCalcula tor.calculateMappingDependencies()V+-33508
j org.eclipse.persistence.internal.sessions.CommitManager.init ializeCommitOrder()V+121
j org.eclipse.persistence.internal.sessions.DatabaseSessionImp l.initializeDescriptors(Ljava/util/Ma

and study sources - then it is seen CollectionMapping.addDescendingOrdering can not be invoked on the heap of ObjectReferenceMapping.hasConstraintDependency - it looks like it is called from another thread or something like that.

Very strange thing.

And as I could see if google "eclipse link + EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION" then there are lots of search results...

Would appreciate for a help.

I would suspect a bug in the JIT compiler. I had a situation in the past
with an IBM JVM, where it worked in debug mode, but not in normal mode.
The code also worked if I added a System.out.println() in the middle of
the problem area.
It turned out to be one of the optimizations in the JIT compiler
generated some bad machine code. Fortunately, the IBM jvm was really
well instrumented, so I was able to turn off the optimizations bit by
bit till I tracked down the method call causing the problem. IBM fixed
it pretty quick.

In your case, you are using a pretty old Sun JVM 1.5.0_13-b05, which
will now be maintained by Oracle (if at all).
Are you using it because you have to? Have you tried a newer JVM, just
to see if the exception still happens?
I don't know if you can selectively turn off the JIT compiler for the
method that fails with that JVM. Worth investigating tho.

Hi, Chris!

Thanks for your detailed answer, and sharing your experience with IBM JVM.

I my case I should use Java 5 as requirement.

But your post helped to me - I downloaded newest version of 1.5 Java - it is update 22, and this problem fixed.

The problem I had is I was thinking this is something related to EclipseLink (as it uses Asm and some classloading manipulations) but seems to be it is a combination of EclipseLink advanced java techniques + Java worked not in a proper way mixing byte code execution from various streams.

Thus, thanks a lot, Chris, for an idea to update JRE.
