[bug] MXJ crash
(I have no idea if this is the correct forum for reporting bugs, but I’m happy to hear what that forum is).
I’m developing a set of MXJ objects to allow intercommunication between Max and Field (a code-writing environment for digital art). I have a MXJ loaded class that was working well in 5.0.7 and now repeatedly and instantaneously crashes Max upon creation. Of course, as a software developer repeatable, instant crashes are the best kind…
Steps to reproduce:
Download Field (just to get the classes, you don’t actually have to run it) from here: http://openendedgroup.com/wp-content/uploads/Field_beta9.dmg
Stick the .app in /Applications
Add this to max.java.config.txt:
Open Max, and attempt to create a “mxj field.extras.max.MaxFieldRoot” box.
Watch Max fall over here:
Thread 0 Crashed: Java: AWT-AppKit Dispatch queue: com.apple.main-thread
(full backtrace / crashreport attached, but the backtrace does vary).
This works under 5.0.7 and doesn’t under 5.0.8 (I can swap back and forth between these version to confirm it).
We are putting quite a bit of stuff on the classpath (a complete Jython implementation for example), but other than that we’re definitely not doing anything JNI’ish or otherwise out of the ordinary.
Field is open source, and I’d be happy to direct you to the relevant part of our source tree if you need to see what we’re doing. In the meantime, I’m going to have to recommend that my user-base sticks with 5.0.7.
