I tweaked the google calendar exception-handling code, a bit,  and
downloaded Wireshark. The next time it happens, I should be ready to

I should have mentioned last time, that to workaround/resolve the issue, I
stop tomee/tomcat, restart, and I run the utility within the webapp which
can do 'manual' updates/pushes to google calendar. that 'always' works...
so, based on that, i am under the assumption that the webapp is not to be
blamed for the exceptions that I'm experiencing...over time, but I'm
(still) considering all what you said and recommended though.

May not be to the best interest of Atmosphere committer, but I reverted
back to Atmosphere 1.0.12 (even though Atmosphere 1.0.13 snapshot seems to
have some good/valid fixes, that don't seem so applicable to me and my use
case), as I found that/1.0.12 as a stable release, and I experienced no
issues. If I experience this issue again, it is time to revert to tomcat
7.0.37 and/or 7.0.35, after diving into Wireshark, while the issue is

Hmmm, i think i remember someone posting an issue with their 'tomcat5'
after windows did an automatic update on their machine (I assume, as it did
on mine that same morning), but I forgot what was the person's issue and if
issue was resolved. I know...I'd have to search the archives or recent
history, since it was earlier this week. :)

just trying to think out loud of all the 'changes' that occurred. it is
clearly not a data issue (since a restart of tomcat and running my 'manual
google calendar update' utility updates google calendar, successfully, with
the same data that was attempted to be pushed via @Schedule and MDB), and i
am not convinced (yet) that my app is to blame, but my app consists of
any/all dependencies that I'm using...including tomee/tomcat. :)

one of the tomee committer has advised me to use @Asynchronous instead of
JMS/ActiveMQ. considering that, but i really don't feel the JMS/ActiveMQ is
'broke'... so, if it ain't broke, don't fix it.
