Subject Resource Unavailable Exception on Unix
Date Sun, 11 Aug 2002 23:21:25 GMT
Good day!
I posted this particular conundrum to the list a few days ago and have yet to hear any 
particular answer to the problem. Therefore, I am going to reiterate it and hopefully someone
will have at least experienced this problem before, or can offer as to a solution to the problem.

We are running on a Solaris box, with 4 GB RAM and dual 1.2 GHz processors. 
We are using Ant 1.5.1 and JDK 1.3. 
We have one central build.xml that calls subsequent build projects in 14 other directories
of our project. Each one of them read from a centralized setup.xml of initial properties.

These are set the same for every subsequent project. 
The typical build process includes: setup & init, clean of old source, recompile of source,
creation of jar/war files, EJB jar files created, and the moving of all created entities to
a centralized
location for development of an EAR file later to deploy to WebSphere Advanced Server 4.3.

Now, the problem occurs during one particular combination of building procedures. If we attempt
to run
through the ENTIRE process above, it will proceed fine until the third subproject attempts
compile its source files, then we will get the following exception: Could not start java:
Temporarily Unavailable. 

If we remove the last step of MOVING/COPYING the created entities (jar/war) to a centralized
then the process will succeed through every subproject to completion. It appears that the
of the move/copy on Unix causes the exec task to hang, and then is unavailable after a specific
of calls on the exec process itself.

Has anyone else ever experienced this phenomenon before? If so, do you have any ideas as to
a solution?
Is there a bug on this particular error? Should one be created? Or is it simply an environment
issue that I 
am missing? 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
