when create a new project with 'jython startproject
testapp', then 'jython testapp/ runserver', you got:

java.lang.ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException: 3916
	at org.objectweb.asm.ClassReader.readClass(Unknown Source)
	at org.objectweb.asm.ClassReader.accept(Unknown Source)
	at org.objectweb.asm.ClassReader.accept(Unknown Source)

note: If u delete all .class then it work.

attached is the project that has the errors.

Indeed, the settings$py.class included on the zip is wrong (javap says
it is invalid).

But I haven't been able to reproduce the root problem (i.e, the
generation of the wrong .class file):

lsoto@spirit:~/tmp$ jython
~/src/django.svn.1.0.X/django/bin/ startproject testapp
lsoto@spirit:~/tmp$ jython testapp/ runserver
Validating models...
0 errors found

Django version 1.0.3 pre-alpha, using settings 'testapp.settings'
Development server is running at
Quit the server with CONTROL-C.

And I don't think that the specific versions of Django and Jython
matters, because this problem was experienced many months ago by other

And another case, from a few days ago:

Jorge: Even if I suspect that is a bug which has been around a lot of
time, can you post the exact versions (or svn revisions) of Django and
Jython which you are using?

Please retry with 2.5b3. Given the .class issues, it's likely to be a
problem with an inconsistent build of Jython.

i still get this behavior with jython 2.5.0, django 1.0.2 (svn rev 9503)
on Windows XP.

After deleting and recreating the class files, I can still get the
corrupted class files to be generated after the 'war' command is issued.
 Trying to run ' war' twice emits an error that the 'war'
command can't be found.

C:\dev\hello>jython war
Unknown command: 'war'
Type ' help' for usage. 

Wiping out the class files (again) makes the problem go away. 

Incidentally on Windows, I also tend to get odd errors about files not
being found - I think this is a related bug.  

"The system cannot find the file ▬?§◄♀?§."

I can reliably reproduce this problem with the following set of tools:

Jython 2.5.0 release, Java 1.6.0_07-b06, django-jython svn rev 107,
Django 1.0.2-svn rev 9503 (from - not the
1.0.x branch). This is on WinXP sp2.


C:\dev\java-world>jython c:\jython2.5\bin\ startproject foo

C:\dev\java-world>cd foo

C:\dev\java-world\foo>javap settings$py
java.lang.ClassFormatError: invalid constant type: 13
ERROR:fatal error
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NullPointerException



Running the WAR command seems to intermittently generate corrupt
versions of settings$py.class, but I can't reproduce it consistently. 
Generating a new project *always* creates corrupt class files for me.

I've seen that mysterious "The system cannot find the file <garbage>" on 
windows but I'm not sure it's related (though I've never tried Django on 

I'm a bit suspicious of Windows line endings being the problem since 
you're seeing "invalid constant type: 13". (char)13 is carriage return. 
Is the 'type: 13' always reproducable?

It's a long shot, but you could test that theory by dos2unixing the 
.class file and then trying to import it

No idea what might be corrupting the bytecode. Doubtful it's our 
compiler but you never know

I tracked down this bug - it's a bug in Django where django itself is
rewriting our class files by accident. I'll file a ticket and a patch
over there.  please close this bug.
