code working on intel-macs but not on ppc-macs


    Jun 13 2007 | 8:46 pm
    hi guys,
    first of all, excuse my bad english. it's not my native language.
    Well,
    im a college student, working with some friends on a project to move sound around in space.
    the software has to work on both, ppc-macs and intel-macs running on mac osx 10.4.9 and max/msp 4.6.3.
    Currently running on the jvm 1.5.07.
    Like the title explains, our code is working properly on intel-macs but creates the "Beachball of Death" if our application is running on an ppc-mac. Absolutely no error-message appears if our error_logging is ON. But if its OFF the patch appears but the console says: could not instantiate s2m_main_GridEditor (the main class of the application) and nothing happens
    We then thought of some memory-issues and configured the java_config of max/msp to load it once with 128, once with 256, and once with 512 mb use of memory. but everytime the same problem.
    BUT: if we start our application inside eclipse (ppc-mac) it's running great, as it does on intel-macs inside max/msp
    you guys are our last chance to get it running. any suggestions?
    thanks in advance

      Are you sending lots of messages really fast ?
      Does it have a UI ?

      also a while ago i sent a message to the list about getting a java
      debugger running with the
      JVM inside max. That could maybe help narrow it down if all else fails!

      hi,
      yes it has a ui.
      right now, we are not sending any messages (if you mean messages over network), but we will in future, using the osc protocoll.

      How is the UI being started?
      Did you try doing it using SwingUtilities.invokeLater to make sure it
      is displayed by the AWT Thread?

      yiehhaaaa :D
      thanks man,
      youre the greatest.
      we tried to do what you've said
      and finally it's running :)
      just a little bit slow,
      but hey it's finally running
      BIG THANKS
      btw: we added to our mainclass
      public S2M_GridEditor()
      {
      final S2M_GridEditor a = this;
      SwingUtilities.invokeLater(new Runnable() {
      public void run() {
      //logging();s2mGUI = new S2M_GUI_Main(S2M_GlobalDefines.START_GRIDEDITOR);
      s2mGUI.setMainObject(a);
      s2mGUI.setVisible(true);
      }
      });
      }
