The forked VM terminated without properly saying goodbye. VM crash or System.exit called?


#1

I’m getting the dreaded “The forked VM terminated without properly saying goodbye. VM crash or System.exit called?” on my Maven build on a particular PR. All passes locally.

For example,

https://circleci.com/gh/GoogleCloudPlatform/cloud-opensource-java/612

From process of elimination I know which test is causing this. I suspect an OutOfMemoryError. However I’m having trouble getting enough log data to diagnose this further. The dump log only shows

We’ve already set

<useSystemClassLoader>false</useSystemClassLoader>

Any suggestions that might help here?
