Subject Re: CLOSE_WAIT state at the client side
Date Mon, 17 Oct 2005 17:12:46 GMT
Thanks for your reply.
is method.releaseConnection() will not close these connections?. I thought releaseConnection
will take care of releasing the CLOSE_WAIT connections. method.releaseConnection() method
will not close the connections completely?.
We are using default connection manager and not using any multithreadedConnection manager.

Do we need to implement multi threade connection manager to close these idle connections?
My code looks like this.

 PostMethod method = new PostMethod(url.toExternalForm());
        DefaultMethodRetryHandler retryHandler = new DefaultMethodRetryHandler();
        HttpClient client = new HttpClient();
     try {
            int statusCode = client.executeMethod(method);
            results = method.getResponseBodyAsString();
     catch(ConnectException cex){
     }catch(Exception e){

Once the communication is over, some client side connections are in CLOSE_WAIT state. Some
times I have seen these CLOSE_WAIT connections will disappear after one day. But most of the
times it will not disappear even after one day. I have to kill my application.

from the server?

Not really. That means these connections have been closed by the server
but the client still assumes they are valid and keeps them in the
connection pool. The way to go is to implement a custom idle connection


Hope this helps
