Hi Team,


I'm facing BufferOverflow Exception when jython interpreter is trying to start.

Below is an excerpt of error.

Please help on probable causes for the same.

Megha, please provide more information:

- what version of Jython are you running?
- which system, which Java version?
- how did you launch Jython (paste command line please)?
- installed version or Jython-standalone?
- this doesn't look like the full stack trace. Can you provide it?
- ideally a script to reproduce the issue

Please upgrade to recent Jython 2.7.1.
I'm afraid there won't be any fixes to older Jython versions.

If the problem persists with Jython 2.7.1, we'll need more detailed steps to reproduce it. "its getting called from a java class" sounds like there is more to it than just "BufferOverflow Exception when jython interpreter is trying to start". A code sample that demonstrates what is actually going on will be crucial.

Advancing to 2.5.3 is a possibility if the language changes in 2.7 are too much to take. I know this was used fairly widely.

Stefan is right that we don't have the team size to advance the 2.5 line with bugfixes. There was a 2.5.4rc but no official release.

Ideally you would be able to take advantage of all the amazing work that went into 2.7 (.0 or .1 according to the criticality of certain features).
