Subject: [gentoo-user] Java apps in 64 bit JVM?
Date: Mon, 29 Jun 2009 16:39:13
1 Hi all,
3 The company has a Juniper Secure Connect VPN and I run amd64. The process is:
4 log in via a web page in a browser, click a button and the page starts a java
5 APP to create the ssl tunnel - a full blown Swing app, not a mere applet.
7 I've only ever got this Java app to run in 32 bit Firefox with the java-x86-
8 emul package. 64 bit Firefox, Konqueror, Opera all fail. I've tried sun-jdk,
9 sun-jre (nsplugin and nsplugin-2), blackdown and icedtea.
11 The only thing that works is firefox-bin with a 32bit jvm. The app doesn't do
12 much in the way of logging so I don't know why it's failing. This strikes me
13 as odd:
15 A java app is bytecode that is independent of platform. It should make no
16 difference whether a 32bit or 64bit jvm executes the bytecode as the format of
17 the Java Virtual Machine and it's bytecode is constant.
19 Surely?
