Subject RE: Tomcat problems every morning.
Date Mon, 02 Jun 2003 02:32:47 GMT
My comment won't be that helpful - but I started out at the same place -
each morning I came in a got a call from staff saying the pages with
content pulled from the dbase was down. 

One thing I know, as others suggested, it has to do with the
JDBC/connection - in our case it happens when the network connection
between our linux box and our sql box os broken at some point - I think
the ISP does late night maintenance on the line (this is setup on an
office DSL line). We are still working to isolate the problem - but it
does seem to be JDBC related. I have tried simply pulling the cable on
the back of one box for a few seconds and the connection does die and
will not reconnect.

I plan to post back to the group when we get a better sense of the
problem - we are still fooling with it. In our case we are using MSSQL
with the MS JDBC driver. I thought I saw a post somewhere that said the
mySQL driver had a autoReconnect=true setting - I think I saw it on the
Apache site.

I hope you figure things out.

Why, yes, I am. And I thought perhaps MySQL was the problem - but I was
told by some people using Oracle and PostgreSQL databases that they'd
seen the problem as well. I tried putting in some code to set the driver
time-out value, but evidently I didn't do it correctly, as the problem
persisted. I don't see the error with versions of Tomcat previous to
4.1.x, tho.
