    Performance issue with WSProvide Ant Task (Windows only)

    Stephan Heffner Newbie

      I'm using WSProvide and WSConsume to create a Web Service client library. Using it on a Linux machine performs well. Switching to Windows it's ~ 20 times slower.

      After several attempts to solve this, e.g. adjusting the memory parameters, I checked the network traffic having in mind it could by some kind of "timeout" problem while accessing resources. Using Wireshark I've seen several NetBIOS Name queries like this:

      NBNS Name query NB JBOSS-4.2.2.GA<00>
      NBNS Name query NB LOG4J.JAR;C<00>
      NBNS Name query NB MAIL.JAR;C<00>

      All of them get the Answer

      NBNS Name query response, Requested name does not exist

      As a first-try workaround I've deactivated NetBIOS over TCP/IP in the Network settings and it's fast as expected.

      But, what is the reason for this? Why NBNS queries for JBOSS-4.2.2.GA?

      Is there any better way to solve this, e.g. a Java option to deactivate NetBIOS requests?

      Thanks in advance
