Subject Re: Problem with RMI, JBOSS reconnect issues, application session getting null
Date Tue, 28 Aug 2007 20:27:18 GMT

Hi Mark,

Thank you very much for your detailed response. I counld'nt check your reply
because i was out for last couple of days. Hope these issue is addressed in
the next specification release. 

But there is some good news about session dropping upon network
disconnection. With the help of my co-workers we are now able to get pass
this issue by performing -Djava.rmi.server.hostname=

I modified JBoss/bin/run.bat and appended the bat file. And to my luck it is
working perfectly now. We do not have any issues of unpluggability now.

Reference :

So yaa this is just a hack or say some sort of workaround. But there should
be some mechanism to handle session timeouts.

Anyways, Mark thanks for your reply.
