It's a bit difficult to tell what the problem is without some more
information.  ktrace and kdump are usually helpful on this, but depend
on the application exiting.  Which leads to one question - what
happens when you send the application a signal?  Remember to check
that "options KTRACE" is enabled in your kernel).

You could also perhaps attach gdb to the process, to attempt to trace
it a bit better.

Finally, I'm sure the jvm will have some form of tracing, so you could
try using it to see what's going on.
