Issue (java.io.EOFException) related to clientLeasePeriod

abhatia Newbie

We have migrated our application from JBoss-4.0.3SP1 to JBoss-5.1.0.GA. We are using ejb2 & messaging. The messaging is highly available part of the application. In our application, we have not touched/modified/overridden any functionality/implementation related to jboss messaging & remoting and rely on default implemntation/functionality provided by JBoss AS. We have only created multiple topics using org.jboss.jms.server.destination.TopicService.


Following exception appears on server side:


Application error detected : WorkerThread#2[] exception occurred during first invocation


        at org.jboss.remoting.transport.socket.ServerThread.processInvocation(ServerThread.java:693)

        at org.jboss.remoting.transport.socket.ServerThread.dorun(ServerThread.java:524)

        at org.jboss.remoting.transport.socket.ServerThread.run(ServerThread.java:232)


On further analysis it has been found that


(here we are talking about <jboss_home>\server\<config>\deploy-hasingleton\messaging\remoting-bisocket-service.xml)


1) if clientLeasePeriod is set to 0 then exception disappears

2) if clientLeasePeriod is non-zero then

     a) if clientLeasePeriod > (validatorPingPeriod + 2000) and both are not divisible by 10

          then exception disappears

     b) if clientLeasePeriod > validatorPingPeriod and either divisible by 10 or less than (validatorPingPeriod + 2000)

          then exception appears

     c) if clientLeasePeriod < validatorPingPeriod then exception appears (this situation is justifiable as explained above in this forum/discussion).


Please help me to understand the reason for the issue & the feasible solutions for the same. Right now we are able to temporarily fix it using scenario 2)a).


Here is our "messaging\remoting-bisocket-service.xml"
