This seems to happen in a combination of ivy Engine 6.0.4 or 6.0.5 and a client JRE with Java 1.8 update 121 installed.

At the moment there are two possible solutions:

  • Don't upgrade the clients to Java 1.8 update 121. (wait for a later version)
  • Upgrade ivy Engine to 6.0.6.

[Update] We filled a bug report with Oracle and they confirmed it's a regression in the current JRE: Bug Report. [/Update]

If your version is lower (e.g. 6.0.3) you seem not affected.

Other Versions (not complete):

Currently we are not aware of other affected ivy versions. Please leave a comment if other versions are affected.

Are only those Versions affected or is the version 5.1.x also affected? We have quite a few customers on pre 6.x so it would be good to know if we should warn them about this JAVA Update.

Annoucing same problem but different ivy Engine version, after upgrading client JRE to 1.8 (ver 121) RIA application from web process start won't start.

  • This problem occurs in a combination of Engine 4.3.19 and JRE 1.8 (ver 121) on client side.

  • Problem doesn't occur in a combination of Engine 4.3.26 and JRE 1.8 (ver 121) on client side.

Adding screenshot of error - ivy Engine 4.3.19 x JRE 1.8 (ver 121)
