Please help me. I want to be able to participate in SRM 724.

I got this error when trying to launch topcoder arena.

I'm also running topcoder-arena on Archlinux using icedtea-web and facing exactly the same issue today.

I solved it by changing default java environment into jre8. e.g. archlinux-java set java-8-openjdk/jre. Hope this help you.
