Platform related issues.

Discussion in 'Java' started by Youngest Lucifer, May 5, 2006.

  1. Hi Folks,

    We have developed a web-application and the deployment of that
    application was done on the winodws platform. We are in the process of
    deploying the same on the Unix platform (probable OS will be Solaris,
    Linux)

    Is there an active list of platform dependent problems in Java?

    We have used multithreading extensively in our application, will
    it require any special attention while deploying on some other
    platform.

    Thanks and Regards
    YL.

    Theoretically it should work without any problems, but in practice it
    all depends on how the application was programmed. Some things to check
    is if the filesystem is addressed correctly (File.separatorChar), if
    there are calls to Runtime.exec in the code, ...

    The multithreading thing can certainly be an issue. Different platforms
    behave different there and some hidden problems there (hidden on
    windows) might show up when running on another platform (deadlocks,
    ....).

    The only thing I can advice is to test it thourough on every platform
    you want to deploy it on.

  3. I would be happy to learn what kind of problems will be faced in came
    of multithreading. Is there a other way of checking it than doing
    thourogh testing since our project is very huge and doing entire
    testing is not really a feasible task.

    Hope you can guide me on this.

    Some links or direction to books or sites will also be helpful.
