A sure way to crash JRuby with Nokogiri, on Windows

Greetings,

I’m sending this to Ruby-talk because I’m really not sure if the problem
is in JRuby, Nokogiri or FFI.

So, Using JRuby 1.4.0 (standard or complete) and Nokogiri-java 1.4.1, on
Windows, try this:

require “rubygems”
require “nokogiri”
xml = %Q(<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>\n\n)
p Nokogiri::XML::Document.parse(xml)

It works.

Now try this:

require “rubygems”
require “nokogiri”
th = Thread.new do
xml = %Q(<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>\n\n)
p Nokogiri::XML::Document.parse(xml)
end
th.join

And see it crash with an EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION. Here’s the top of
the stack:

This works just fine on OS X. Anyone has any idea what the problem is?

Have you tried 1.5.0 builds? There have been a lot of fixes since 1.4.

I’ll take a look. I’ve commented on the JRuby ticket as well.

This appears to be an issue with the libxml2 DLL shipped with Nokogiri’s
JRuby gem.
