AEM 6.1 Crashing abruptly


Level 4

Hello Team,

My AEM 6.1 instance is crashing abruptly and shows as attached in the image.

I am using JDK 1.8.77. Also tried using JDK 1.8.73

Case1: No SP1 installed

Case 2: Installed SP1

Case 3: Installed couple of hot fixes on AEM 6.1

All the three cases are done independently but still the issue comes up.

Can you share system configurations?

Try running AEM on JDK 7 and see if it still crashes. 



[Try this workaround]

I was actually able to fix it by just renaming my WorkSpace to WorkSpace1. Apparently it got corrupted somehow, and with the rename Eclipse was able to recreate a new one. Here's the link that helped me out:



I hope this would help you.

Thanks and Regards
