JRE crashes when running sqlite statements


I've never seen something like this. I've spent over an hour whittling this down to the simplest I could get it.

import java.io.File;
import java.sql.*;

public class Test {
    private static final String DB_PATH = "test.db";

    public static void main(String[] args) throws ClassNotFoundException, SQLException {
        new File(DB_PATH).delete();

        Connection conn = null;
        Statement s = null;
        try {
            conn = DriverManager.getConnection("jdbc:sqlite:" + DB_PATH);

            s = conn.createStatement();
            s.execute("CREATE TABLE person (id integer primary key, name text)");
            s.execute("CREATE VIEW person_view AS SELECT p.id, p.name FROM person p");
                + "CREATE TRIGGER person_view_delete INSTEAD OF DELETE ON person_view "
                + "BEGIN delete from person where id = old.id; END"
            s.executeUpdate("INSERT INTO person (id, name) VALUES (42, 'hi')");

            System.out.println("After this line...");
            s.executeUpdate("DELETE FROM person_view WHERE id = 42");
            System.out.println("And before this line...");
        } finally {
            try {
                if (s != null) s.close();
            } finally {
                if (conn != null) conn.close();

This crashes every single time. The log file:

I am using sqlitejdbc-v056, and I am developing in Eclipse.

I have exported this as a jar and run it; I have all compiled this to a .class on the command line (outside Eclipse). In neither case was I able to reproduce this.

Curiously, if I define the view as CREATE VIEW person_view AS SELECT id, name FROM person, I do not get any error.

My personal congratulations to anyone who can see why this happens. (I am also interested to know if anyone else can reproduce it.)

I'm in two minds as to weather to make this an answer or a comment. This is NOT the answer for the OP but may be very useful for future readers. Future readers are advised to check they have the latest version as this was what solved the OP's problem.

Why am I posting if it's not the answer?... I've just head a very similar error which could not be distinguished from this one based on the error alone. I tried with a number of different versions of the xerial sqlite-library and hit the same thing.

After a long time on google and nothing but blanks I eventually discovered this error was being triggered by my code. I had effectively called:

conn = DriverManager.getConnection("jdbc:sqlite:" + DB_PATH);
s = conn.createStatement();
s.execute(null); // oops

This happened because all my queries are packaged up and loaded up separately at runtime, an incorrect reference caused a null pointer where there should have been a query.

In general you expect nothing your code does should crash the JVM. However where JNI based libraries are concerned this is not always the case. It seems the xerial sqlite-jdbc library does not do complete null checking and some things (such as a null SQL query) will cause it to crash the JVM on a null pointer.

The null pointer is shown by address "0x00000000" in the error file:

siginfo: ExceptionCode=0xc0000005, reading address 0x00000000

However as this was also present in the OP's question it seems that a bug in a previous version would cause this anyway.
