Not a B4J issue proper, but an issue using it nevertheless...
I installed B4J with OpenJDK11.
I an getting this error when trying to open a COM port under Win 10 64:
B4X:

I googled it and found a number of references to this bug being due to an issue with the jssc library (as pointed out by the error log).

I switched to the Oracle version of Java and the problem went away.

It seems strange (and more than a little bit disappointing) that this particular issue has been reported for quite some time and that nobody has fixed it.

I am using jdk1.8.0_152 at the moment, 64 bits (jdk-8u152-windows-x64.exe).
Interestingly, I very occasionally get the same error with this one, but most of the time the program runs.

The error occurs when I try to rapidly close then reopen the port, not every time. It may depend on whether there is data in the buffer or data coming in, I have not been able to troubleshoot further because it is now pretty rare and it is hard to control the data coming in.
