Chris - I've noticed that little "attachment" issue also, but it only applies to replies to your posts. It doesn’t appear that way when I send it. (BTW: I'm using Outlook 2007 via Exchange 2003.) I didn't think that our code would be the cause, but since I've not done any coding for Tomcat, I wasn't sure. I'm thinking it might be an issue with the 1.1.18 native library. None of my other systems are showing the issue, but they are using version 1.1.3 of the library, although one is using 1.1.16 and not showing the problem either. I backed them back down to the 1.1.3 version and am waiting to see if the problem re-presents itself. Finally, could it be something the end user's browser is doing/not doing? Or perhaps an intervening proxy at the customer site? I haven't been able to reproduce the issue using in-house browsers/users against the production site, or even a similarly configured test site. Which side of the conversation actually closes the connection? And leaving the connection open result in threads being busy, even though they are waiting? Jeff

Instead, I see the "confidential warning" that gets attached to all your messages, sometimes (if I'm lucky) followed by your actual message. Usually, I have to open the "attachment" that contains your actual text. :( On 4/15/2010 12:57 PM, Jeffrey Janner wrote: > I've not got the tools nor training to do a Windows build.

Sounds like a good idea: can you set up a test system that you can pound while you figure out the magic recipe of versions that will yield a stable system? > I think it's probably a sudden usage spike by the customer's > 3rd-party users.

It's unlikely that your code is leaking HTTP connections somehow. Maybe JDBC connections, but that's another story. - -chris ******************************* NOTICE ********************************* This message is intended for the use of the individual or entity to which it is addressed and may contain information that is privileged, confidential, and exempt from disclosure under applicable law.
