ECN-4577 New methods for --no-signal-handlers switch added to CVM.jar

Incidents: 3161410

RPI Number: 1114509


Module: CVM.jar

Machines Affected: all

Known Versions Affected: all


Two new methods have been added to the Java CVM class (CVM.jar); they are:

  • boolean getNoSignalHandlers()
  • void setNoSignalHandlers(boolean value)

Use these methods to pass the --no-signal-handlers switch to the runtime during initialization. By default this option is not passed. When set, the --no-signal-handlers switch prevents the runtime's signal handlers from being enabled. (In some cases, the runtime's signal handlers may interfere with the expected Java signal handlers, causing unexpected behavior.)
