Why does the JVM return exit status code 143?

A Java application running as an scheduled task on Windows 2003 crashed with no logs or anything that would help to find out what happened. The only information available, is that the application returned code 143 (8F). That error code was retrieved from the scheduled tasks log.

Does anyone knows what that error code (143) stands for? Is it possible that an user logging off could cause the application to be terminated?

Thanks,

Answer

JVM error code 143 means Internal field must be valid. This is discussed on the OTN discussion forums. However, the conclusion seems to be something killed your process.

I suspect this could indeed be caused by a user logging off.
