C++ JNI crashes/hangs when doing any IO/Streams

I seem to have a big problem when trying to compile C++ code to use on the JAVA side. When I try to do anything IO/Stream/Manipulation related, the JVM seems to crash.

Sometimes, like once every 10 times when I run the application, the JNI works 100% with all the IO stuff. Then the rest of the times the JVM crashes or hangs.

I'm using: Windows 10 x64, JAVA jdk1.8.0_102, Netbeans 8.1, g++, additional options: -D__int64=int64_t

When I do these, the JNI works fine:

JNIEXPORT jstring JNICALL Java_Main_nativePrint
(JNIEnv *env, jobject)
return env->NewStringUTF("HELLO");

JNIEXPORT jstring JNICALL Java_Main_nativePrint
(JNIEnv *env, jobject)
double var = std::sqrt(100);
return env->NewStringUTF("HELLO");

When I try incorporating anything such as
, or
, the JVM crashes. Even instantiating the
seems to crash me. I assume other sorts of manipulation function also crashes me:

Java_Main_nativePrint(JNIEnv *env, jobject instance)
int variable = 100;
char str[15];

sprintf(str, "%d", variable);
puts(str); //CRASHES ON HERE

return env->NewStringUTF(str);

JNIEXPORT jstring JNICALL Java_Main_nativePrint
(JNIEnv *env, jobject)
double res = std::sqrt(100);

std::stringstream ss;
//ss << std::sqrt(100);
//const char* str = ss.str().c_str();

return env->NewStringUTF("HELLO");

I seem to be having a similar problem to this person:

JNI with c++ keeps crashing on cout, printf and method calls

Here's my dump:

@RustyX is likely correct. Mixing multiple C++ run-time libraries in a single process is not likely to work well, if at all.

The JVM appears to rely on the Microsoft C++ run-time. Adding the GNU C++ run-time isn't likely to work. This page from MinGW addresses some of the issues:

Interoperability of Libraries Created by Different Compiler Brands


Even though GNU g++ can link MSVC C++ libraries now, and can produce MSVC++ compatible libraries/DLLs, this does not mean that they will be able to work at run-time due to the dynamic nature of C++. Some possible reasons for this are:

  • The simple name mangling issue which it may be possible to circumvent with an explicit .def file.
  • Different structure alignment issues which need the correct compiler options (-mms-bitfields, ...).
  • A fundamental conflict of underlying exception and memory models:
    • A new/delete or malloc/free in a MSVC DLL will not co-operate with a Cygwin newlib new/delete or malloc/free. One cannot free space which was allocated in a function using a different new/malloc at all.
    • An exception raised by an MSVC DLL will not be caught by a Cygwin executable, and vice versa.
    • The slow GNU SJLJ exception model, (used in GCC-3.x and earlier), is compatible with the MSVC++ model, but the new DWARF2 model, (which will be used by GCC-4.x), will be incompatible.

Resolving memory management compatibility issues and conflicts between different new/delete and malloc/free implementations is going to be difficult if not impossible.
