I am currently doing some tests with the Python wrapper of Orekit. While debugging a simple python script, using PyCharm as IDE, as soon as there is a call to a java object the debugger terminates with the following error:
Process finished with exit code -1073741819 (0xC0000005)
Here below you can find the example that I am using:
vm = orekit.initVM()
from orekit.pyhelpers import setup_orekit_curdir
from org.orekit.time import TimeScalesFactory
from org.orekit.propagation.analytical.tle import TLE
utc = TimeScalesFactory.getUTC() # Setting here the breakpoint and advancing (“Step Over”) causes the failure
TLE_LINE1 = “1 27421U 02021A 02124.48976499 -.00021470 00000-0 -89879-2 0 20”
TLE_LINE2 = “2 27421 98.7490 199.5121 0001333 133.9522 226.1918 14.26113993 62”
tle = TLE(TLE_LINE1, TLE_LINE2)
Python scripts which are not relying on the wrapping are working fine in PyCharm, only when orekit objects are called I encounter this issue.
I’ve also noticed that the same behaviour appears when trying to display the content of a variable connected to Orekit. For instance after the following call:
from org.orekit.propagation.sampling import PythonOrekitFixedStepHandler
trying to inspect the content of PythonOrekitFixedStepHandler terminates the debugger.
I tried a fresh installation of Python and PyCharm, even downgrading it, however none of them seem to have an effect. I am using the latest version of PyCharm and Python 3.7.10. The python interpreter is set as in the Wiki of the wrapper.
I am wondering if someone else had this issue with PyCharm? If so please let me know!
Thank you for your answers
