Reporting Bugs is Important!
Thank you for coming to this page and we are sorry if you are experiencing difficulties with the Jikes RVM. We do our best to test and debug Jikes RVM, but with so much variety of hardware and configurations it may be that we've missed something. This is where you can make a contribution to Jikes RVM by just telling us what isn't working! When we know something isn't working we can look to schedule fixing it into our release road map. Reporting bugs is really important to us, we can know what we need to fix and how soon. This is also true if you are experiencing problems with a Jikes RVM that you have modified for your own development.
How to report bugs
We use a bug tracking system called JIRA, it is really friendly to use. To avoid spam JIRA does require a user account, but setting this up is a matter of following the instructions when you click on login.
Checking your bug isn't already in JIRA
Use the search or browse the bug categories to see if your problem has been reported before. If it has you can let us know that this issue is important by voting to have it fixed!
Create a bug report
Follow the instructions in JIRA on how to create a bug report. Please provide enough information that we can reproduce the error.
NB. This page is the landing pad for when an abnormal condition has terminated Jikes RVM.
