    Socket closed exception in JBossMQ

    vony jon Newbie


      I am using jboss 4.2.0 and i have couple of MDBs in my application which is bound to queues
      Every now and then i am seeing following exception in my server.log

      I am running Jboss in cluster mode and we have 2 nodes in cluster.

      What could be the problem in JBoss MQ or in my MsgSender code

      Here is my MsgSender which post message in queue for MDB
       public void send(String jndiQueueName, String message)throws NamingException, JMSException, Exception
       logger.info("MsgSender Using jndiQueueName:"+jndiQueueName);
       logger.info("Sening string object:" + message);
       QueueConnection conn = getQueueConncetion();
       QueueSession session = conn.createQueueSession(false,QueueSession.AUTO_ACKNOWLEDGE);
       Queue que = (Queue) getContext().lookup(jndiQueueName);
       QueueSender sender = session.createSender(que);
       TextMessage txtMsg = session.createTextMessage();
       //free all created objects
       if(sender != null) {
       if(session != null) {
       if(conn != null) {
       logger.info("Msg sent successfully");

          This happens when the network connection is terminated (either by hardware problems, firewall, router, os buffer shortage, jmx-stop of server or restart of the other side).

          I dont think your (client) code can or is causing this.

          However your client code is missing proper error and resource handling. Especially you should use finally blocks to close the connection. This can explain leaking connections, which lead to leaking threads and this quickly (on hpux) leads to out of native memory.
