Subject Re: Transport Exceptions close the connection
Date Wed, 23 May 2007 20:46:01 GMT

Hello James,

I'm switching right now to 4.1.1 and also use to failover with vm, just to
be safe. Also I will remove my code, so I will not to handle connection
re-creation; after that I will be back with updates :)

Thanks.
