FULL PRODUCT VERSION :
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_01-ea-b03)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.6.0_01-ea-b03, mixed mode)
ADDITIONAL OS VERSION INFORMATION :
Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]
A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
Since the CDS feature was introduced in 5.0 it always ceases to work 2-times a year just immediately after Daylight saving change takes place. To make it work again one have to "dump" the shared archive file again.
EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
1) install jre or jdk on windows
2) verify that java.exe -Xshare:on works
3) wait for start of end of daylight saving time change
4) see that java.exe -Xshare:on fails
ERROR MESSAGES/STACK TRACES THAT OCCUR :
An error has occured while processing the shared archive file.
A jar file is not the one used while building the shared archive file.
Error occurred during initialization of VM
Unable to use shared archive.
This bug can be reproduced always.
CUSTOMER SUBMITTED WORKAROUND :
Rebuild the shared archive file twice a year manually is NOT an option for JOE the user rendering CDS useless.
