      Description

      FULL PRODUCT VERSION :


      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
      Here are some additional informations for https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8078230

      I've created a small test-project to run an swt-application with webstart.
      --> Unfortnately I can not attach a file to the bugreport - so please contact me to send you the archive.

      Windows works as expected but macos not.

      If you add -XstartOnFirstThread to the j2se-tag for macos the application does not launch.
      --> last output from java console: basic: Existing, also no logfile in user.home/webstart_test.log was created.

      If you remove the -XstartOnFirstThread argument from j2se-tags (in webstart.jnlp and APPLICATION_TEMPLATE.JNLP) the application starts
      but ends with an invalid thread access as described in JDK-8078230.

      Adding -XstartOnFirstThread and running with latest java from apple (1.6) starts the application as expected.
      "/System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Versions/1.6.0/Commands/javaws" webstart.jnlp

      Attached file is an eclipse-project.
      build.xml generates the webstart.jar with contents from bin-folder, MANIFEST and APPLICATION_TEMPLATE.JNLP
      webstart.jnlp is the main-launcher-file
      webstart_swt.jnlp is just an extension with platform-specific swt-libraries.
      Testing with javaws webstart.jnlp should be enough (don't forgett to update the codebase in webstart.jnlp - APPLICATION_TEMPLATE.JNLP contains codebase="*")
      After generating the webstart.jar you have to sign it with your certificate.


      It would be nice to start swt-applications via webstart without modifying local settings, running from command line or use an old java version.
      Just install latests java and run the app.
      If possible the bugfix should be backported to java 7 or at least java 8.

      REGRESSION. Last worked in version 8u60


      REPRODUCIBILITY :
      This bug can be reproduced always.
