user log folder, netbeans trace file, and netbeans console output
Start-up netbeans 7.1 rc2
help / Check for updates
Dialog times-out and doesn't connect to the internet.
NO proxy or other impediment is active.
** I wanted to ask if there is a simple command line tool I can use to verify that netbeans access to sockets or the internet is functional or not functional?
I have included a ZIP of the netbeans user log folder:
Which includes a capture of the console output and netbeans --Trace file.
Please note the following error from the "get updates" menu command:
Java DLL path: b:\lang\java\jdk\x64\v1.7\u01\jre\bin\server\jvm.dll
Cannot load b:\lang\java\jdk\x64\v1.7\u01\jre\bin\server\jvm.dll. %1 is not a valid Win32 application. (193)
Falling back to running Java in a separate process; DLL cannot be loaded (64-bit DLL?).
It appears to me that something is NOT loading, and can't connect to the internet due to a x32-bit / x64-bit problem with either netbeans or java sdk.
At the very least there's a problem with the error message showing "%1" instead of the name of the thing that can't load.
Could you try it again today night or later? NB7.1 is coming out right and perhaps something wrong on a server side. The UC seems to be working now. Thanks.
If a problem persists I send you a switch for more verbose logging.
Some progress, though not from the place you'd expect.
I did a little experiment with other Java programs that access the net. Eclipse, Netbeans and Lobo (the Java browser). They all work with Java v1.6 u29 (64-bit windows).
They all Fail with Java 1.7 u01 (64-bit windows).
Command line example.
Java 6 -- Works ::
b:\lang\java\jre\x64\v1.6\u29\bin\java.exe -jar c:\.bin\media\lobo\v00.98\lobo.jar
Java 7 -- Failed ::
b:\lang\java\jre\x64\v1.7\u01\bin\java.exe -jar c:\.bin\media\lobo\v00.98\lobo.jar
%NETBEANS_HOME%\bin\netbeans.exe --jdkhome %JDK_HOME%
Using the matching Java v1.6 u29 (64-bit) JDK.
The culprit seems to be Java 1.7 itself or the install file.
I've submitted a bug against Java using the Lobo example. Oracle bug ID:
If anyone has helpful suggestions, please update the bug entry.
Advice for someone having trouble with the new netbeans and Java 1.7, roll back to 1.6 u29 (or better).

A correction: it's reproducible with Lobo Browser, not reproducible with jvisualvm. Seems a problem could be on Lobo Browser side.
It is good the 32-bit version works with jvisualvm.
I tested jvisualvm with the JDK 1.7, 64-bit before trialling lobo. My choice of lobo was to isolate the issue from netbeans (jvisualvm is a netbean platform app).
