Hi Folks,

We are facing issue with process builder on JRockit JVM with solaris 
5.10 machine. That is realted to following bug:


Currently we are using JRockit JDK 1.6.0_37-R28.2.5-4.1.0 version. 
Please let me know  following :

  * Which version of JRockit this bug is fixed ? (as it is fixed in JAVA
    8u 15)
  * If yes then  is it also fixed for solaris 5.10 or In solaris process
    builder still uses fork() call ?

As per this page link below Mr. Rob wrote that for solaris it still 
using fork which is confusing weather fixed for solaris or not:


Please confirm for this fix and thanks in advance.

Waiting for your response,

*Amit Baxi
