Core Dump when Attempting to Create any New Report on UNIX Server

(Doc ID 751344.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 12, 2018

Applies to:

Oracle Reports Developer - Version to [Release 10gr2]
Generic UNIX


Creating any new report using Reports Builder, fails with core dump.

Steps to Reproduce:
Try creating a simple new report using Report Wizard, based on:
- Tabular Style
- Query: select sysdate from dual
- Select default settings throughout Reports Wizard
- Select "No Template"

When click on "Finish", the Reports Builder crashes with core dump.

An hs_err_pidXXXXX.log and a core file with the same time stamp are created under $ORACLE_HOME/bin directory.

The following is a sample error message shown after crash:

$ ./
# An unexpected error has been detected by HotSpot Virtual Machine:
# SIGSEGV (0xb) at pc=0xfc368a34, pid=12454, tid=1
# Java VM: Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (1.4.2_14-b05 mixed mode)
# Problematic frame:
# C [] strrchr+0x4
# An error report file with more information is saved as hs_err_pid12454.log
# If you would like to submit a bug report, please visit:
