Error while creating jvm in DLL

I've written a custom odbc driver to execute some complex queries
using Tomcat Server.

MS ACCESS loads the dll (through system DSN) I created and links the
table to oracle using my odbc drier.

The problem:

Inside the dll I'm creating a jvm which talks to the tomcat server.

When I run a sample application locally it works just fine (in the
sense, the jvm gets created and connection to tomcat etc etc.)

But when I try to run it through ODBC bridge, the dll is not able to
create the JVM:

It throws an exception :

# An unexpected error has been detected by HotSpot Virtual Machine:
# EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION (0xc0000005) at pc=0x10004e86, pid=4184,

I' was trying to use a simple java program to test the functionality.

Here is the sample java code.

import java.sql.*;

class SimpleSelect {

      public static void main (String args[]) {
       String url = "jdbc:odbc:aptest";
       String query = "SELECT * FROM emp";

       try {

       // Load the jdbc-odbc bridge driver

       Class.forName ("sun.jdbc.odbc.JdbcOdbcDriver");


       // Attempt to connect to a driver. Each one
       // of the registered drivers will be loaded until
       // one is found that can process this URL

       Connection con = DriverManager.getConnection (
       url, "abc", "abc");

       // If we were unable to connect, an exception
       // would have been thrown. So, if we get here,
       // we are successfully connected to the URL

<Here is the code in the myodbc dll for which the DSN is created>

**,void **,void *);

    JNI_JVMPROC ProcAdd;
    if(env == NULL || jvm == NULL)

        options[0].optionString = "-Djava.class.path="required path given
for jars"
    // options[1].optionString = "-verbose:jni";

        vm_args.version = JNI_VERSION_1_2;
        vm_args.options = options;
        vm_args.nOptions = 1;

        vm_args.ignoreUnrecognized = JNI_TRUE;

        // JNI_GetDefaultJavaVMInitArgs(&vm_args);

  if (!getcwd(buffer, 512)) { /* returns null if path is too long */
    cout << "Path name is too long \n" ;
  else {
    cout << "Current Working Directory is " << buffer;

        cout << "\n\n**************Loading jvm.dll library****************\n
        hinstLib = LoadLibrary("jvm.dll");

        if (hinstLib == NULL)

        cout << "\n\n**************Failed Loading jvm.dll

        ProcAdd = (JNI_JVMPROC) GetProcAddress(hinstLib,

        if(ProcAdd != NULL ) {

            cout << "------------Proc address got is : --------" << ProcAdd;

        res = (ProcAdd) (&jvm,(void**)&env,&vm_args);
        //res = JNI_CreateJavaVM(&jvm,(void**)&env,&vm_args);
        cout <<res;
        if (res < 0)
            cerr<< "\n\n Can't create Java VM FROM Swapnil" << endl;
            if (env->ExceptionOccurred())
            cout<< "Destroying JVM" << endl;

I tried using the simple way of creating the jvm also but didn't work
out. The same code works when I load the dll directly in a sample

I checked the path , environment variables as well. The only problem
is jvm is not created when I try to invoke it from dll through

Any help would be appreciated.
