Problem summary

  • The problem is caused when native methods exist in the class to
    be re-defined.
    

Problem conclusion

  • This APAR will be fixed in the following Java Releases:
       6 R1 SR8       (6.1.8.0)
       7    SR7       (7.0.7.0)
       7 R1           (7.1.0.0)
       6    SR16      (6.0.16.0)

    The JVM has been updated so that the native methods are properly
    handled during classfile retransformation/redefinition.
