Subject servlet hang
Date Wed, 12 Sep 2001 12:46:13 GMT
Hi All,
I'm new to the this list, but I have searched endlessly on the following

First the machine config:
	Dell-installed RedHat Linux, kernel 2.2.14
	Apache 1.3.12 compiled from source
	Tomcat 3.2.3 compile from source
	Blackdown JDK 1.2.2-FCS

I have a webapp that utilizes applet-servlet communication.  I send
java objects back and forth, but the problem I have only occurrs when
a serialized object -from- the applet -to- the servlet.

My servlet.log file shows StreamCorruptedException: EOFException.

After a varying number of the above exceptions, the machine completely
hangs.  It's not just that the servlet engine crashes, but the entire
It then requires a hard reboot.

I have tried trapping the StreamCorruptedException.
I have tried closing the Connection.InputStream.
I have tried reading the leftover bytes -from- the Connection.InputStream
	after the StreamCorruptedException was thrown.

This is an important project for my company, and I'm at my wits end.

Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated.
