Using a custom java class which is based on a third party java wrapper, on
SLES 10 (no SP), IDM 3.01.

When we sometime encounter application errors, we can Catch the relevant
exception, print the error and then System.exit(1);

However, these error conditions always ends up with the "JVM exited
unexpectedly" which brings down ndsd as well.

Is there a known way to prevent JVM from shutting down in such cases ?
