If i compile php wit ext/xslt and ext/java, new java segfaults.

here the system:

jdk 1.3.1 from sun
java -version:
java version "1.3.1"
Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.3.1-b24)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.3.1-b24, mixed mode)

php cvs-branch php_4_0_7

"--enable-debug=yes" \
"--with-apxs=/usr/local/apache/bin/apxs" \
"--with-java=/usr/lib/java" \
"--enable-xslt" \
"--with-xslt-sablot" \


 $system = new Java('java.lang.System');
  print 'Java version='.$system->getProperty('java.version').' <br>';

  print 'OS='.$system->getProperty('').' '.
              $system->getProperty('os.version').' on '.
              $system->getProperty('os.arch').' <br>';

Hope someone still does maintain ext/java (it's quite useful in some situations..)

I have the same problem:

PHP 4.1.1

Debian Linux 2.2 with all updates as of 1st Feb. 2002

Apache 1.3.23 (or Apache delivered with debian, doesn't matter)

Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.3.1_02-b02)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.3.1_02-b02, mixed mode)
(or JDK 1.3.1_01, doesnt' matter)

Sablotron 0.71 or 0.82 (doesn't matter)

./configure \
        --with-tsrm-pthreads \
        --prefix=/opt/apache-1.3.23/php-4.1.1 \
        --with-apxs=/opt/apache-1.3.23/bin/apxs \
        --enable-xslt \
        --with-xslt-sablot=/opt/local \

Adding 50 other directives doesn't matter. As soon
as I remove --enable-xslt and --with-xslt-sablot
"new Java(...)" works.

Please test with  PHP 4.1.1+JDK 1.2 and report the result back 
Please do not forget  updating PHP version. Thanks.
 [2002-02-24 06:30 UTC]
It always worked with JDK 1.2... 

And i don't think, there was much of a change in ext/java or ext/xslt from 2001-09-1 till today (in the 4.1 branch, don't know about HEAD)

anyway, i use at the moment JDK 1.2, so this is not that important for me, someone else has to verify it (maybe giving JDK 1.4 a try)

The system:
Red Hat 7.1 (kernel 2.4.2-2)
Sun JDK 1.4.0 RC
Apache 1.3.20 (compiled with LDFLAGS...)
PHP 4.0.6 (--with-apxs...)
Sablotron 0.90
Expat 1.95.2

The problem:
PHP compiles fine with Apache (DSO) and Sablotron/Expat.
When compiling with JDK, pure PHP+XML/XSLT code executes fine either via browser or via command line. Any java code inserted and core dumps and segmentation faults appear.
If compiling Apache, PHP and JDK, simple PHP+Java code resumes fine in both modes (command line/browser).
I noticed that related problems had been already reported with different versions, but they'd never solved.
I also read someone arguing why is that someone would use PHP and Java and I got twisted.
The issue:
There's an application project I'm working with where we use PHP code to execute a database query (via WWWISIS), returning a XML content that is transformed with XSLT. This is already done with PHP/Sablot/Expat. But, with java, we would execute multiple threads, each one collecting a piece of XML data, which bundled together would be then returned to PHP and then transformed.
I appreciate any suggestions.

It's strange from the point of view of Sablotron.

First... Sablotron never performs some thread locking, since the code (if API is used in proper way) is thread safe. It's not absolutely bulletproof, but should work undem most conditions.

What is very suspicious is, that the Arena::~Arena in the backtrace above, is called from some other library, since it should be hidden form other libs and used internally (and called from other Sablotron destructors as a result of this).

Has somebody a clue, what library defines the ciEnv class? It looks like this is a linking problem (and is it even possible?) Could somebody rename Arena to SabArena in the Sablotron source (there are just few occurences) and test it?
 [2002-08-14 12:30 UTC]
can you please try the latest CVS?  I believe I may have fixed this for you... but I could be wrong.  
 [2002-09-10 02:18 UTC]
Just tested with latest CVS and jdk 1.4 and sablotron 0.96. It still segfaults... with the same bt:

It's maybe clear for everyone, but both (sablotron and libjvm) have obviously a class called Arena in the global namespace... This class is not used in the php-source-code, but calls it on destruction of some compiling stuff. 

I'm by no way the compiling, resp c++ expert to resolve this problem, but maybe someone else has an idea. Would be great :)

 [2002-09-10 04:28 UTC]

I found the solution (as suggested by pavel)

I did a quick search&replace (Arena to SabArena) in Sablot/src/engine and now it doesn't segfault anymore...

I will check with the Sablot guys, what they think of it.

 [2002-09-10 07:03 UTC]
Good news from Sablotron.

They will change this in the next release (0.97?) and therefore we can close now this almost one year old bug.
