After these steps to upgrade Java, CF services won't restart.

Current version of CF is 2016,0,11,314546  

Downloaded JDK 11.0.3 from Adobe download site, resides at C:\Program Files\Java\jdk-11.0.3  (without source code)

Stopped CF

Updated jvm.config

     #java.home=C:\\Program Files\\Java\\jre1.8.0_211

     java.home=C:\\Program Files\\Java\\jdk-11.0.3

Restart of CF fails.

Revert to JRE 1.8 and restart CF successfully.

No logs. Event log points to third party error and Service Specific Error Code 2.

What am I missing?

Hi,

What if you run CMD prompt as admin then change directory to CF2016\cfusion\bin and start CF via cfstart.bat. That might output if there is a Java syntax error.

Could be Java 11 does not comprehend the Java 8 debug or GC logging settings.

Regards, Carl.

Hi,

For Java 11 You need to add these to JVM arguments:

--add-opens=java.rmi/sun.rmi.transport=ALL-UNNAMED --add-opens=java.base/java.nio=ALL-UNNAMED --add-opens=java.base/java.lang=ALL-UNNAMED --add-opens=java.base/sun.util.cldr=ALL-UNNAMED  --add-opens=java.base/sun.util.locale.provider=ALL-UNNAMED

-Djava.locale.providers=COMPAT,SPI

EG:

# Arguments to VM

java.args=-server  -Xms2048m -Xmx2048m --add-opens=java.rmi/sun.rmi.transport=ALL-UNNAMED --add-opens=java.base/java.nio=ALL-UNNAMED --add-opens=java.base/java.lang=ALL-UNNAMED --add-opens=java.base/sun.util.cldr=ALL-UNNAMED --add-opens=java.base/sun.util.locale.provider=ALL-UNNAMED -XX:MaxMetaspaceSize=640m  -Xbatch -Djava.locale.providers=COMPAT,SPI - etc

HTH, Carl.

After adding the arguments still not working. Made sure the arguments do not have any extra blanks or carriage returns.

What is the value of your java.args setting?

Are there any error messages in the logs?

There is only an entry in the event log that says could not start CF server... non-Microsoft service, refer to service-specific error code 2.

No other log entries in CF found.

Here is the jvm.config:

#
# VM configuration
#
# Where to find JVM, if {java.home}/jre exists then that JVM is used
# if not then it must be the path to the JRE itself

#java.home=C:\\Program Files\\Java\\jre1.8.0_201
#java.home=C:\\Program Files\\Java\\jre1.8.0_211
java.home=C:\\Program Files\\Java\\jdk-11.0.3

#
# If no java.home is specified a VM is located by looking in these places in this
# order:
#
#  1) ../runtime/jre
#  2) registry (windows only)
#  3) JAVA_HOME env var plus jre (ie $JAVA_HOME/jre)
#  4) java.exe in path
#

# Arguments to VM
#Incase of Java 9 or higher add the following arguments to java.args
#--add-opens=java.rmi/sun.rmi.transport=ALL-UNNAMED --add-opens=java.base/java.nio=ALL-UNNAMED --add-opens=java.base/java.lang=ALL-UNNAMED --add-opens=java.base/sun.util.cldr=ALL-UNNAMED  --add-opens=java.base/sun.util.locale.provider=ALL-UNNAMED -Djava.locale.providers=COMPAT,SPI

Checked also on jetty/logs and found nothing there. Are there any other logs I should be looking for?

Some suggestions:

  • leave out -verbose:gc
  • delete unnecessary comments

I have compared your version with a working version. See my private message. I shall send you the result when I get your e-mail address.

My jvm.config did have some GC logging settings that are no longer valid in Java 11. Using cfstart.bat was the way to find them.

Once the java 11 invalid GC logging settings were removed from your copy it worked.
