    Large web service request, connection prematurely closed

    Sean Tindale Newbie

      I wasn't sure where to post this web service question....

      (Is there a better place to post this?)

      I have a Grails application that I have deployed to JBoss AS 4.2.2.GA

      (Ref: http://www.jboss.org/index.html?module=bb&op=viewtopic&t=152946)

      This application has some web services (using XFire). One of these web services receives large SOAP pay loads (1MB+). When I try and do one of these large requests I get the following exception.

      org.codehaus.xfire.XFireRuntimeException: Could not read XML stream.. Nested exception is com.ctc.wstx.exc.WstxEOFException: Unexpected end of input block in end tag
      at [row,col {unknown-source}]: [1,1441792]
      com.ctc.wstx.exc.WstxEOFException: Unexpected end of input block in end tag
      at [row,col {unknown-source}]: [1,1441792]

      etc.....

      The interesting thing is that this application works just fine when deployed on the Jetty Servlet container.

      I wonder if there is some sort of tcp / http buffer setting in JBoss AS that I can manipulate? Or something like that........?

      Any suggestions?

      Thanks in advance

          In addition...

          If I do a much smaller request to this same web service it works just fine under JBoss.

            It does sound like a buffer configuration issue, the question is which buffer and where to configure it. Please post the full stack trace - that might give some clues.

              Here is the full exception logging, what do you think? thanks

              • 4. Re: Large web service request, connection prematurely closed
                Peter Johnson Master

                Digging through the source of Woodstox (http://woodstox.codehaus.org/) was not that helpful - apparently there is some configuration file somewhere that links the Woodstox reader with a socket.

                Does the transfer take longer than 20 seconds? If so, try increasing the connectionTimeout in server/xxx/deploy/jboss-web.deploy/server.xml.

                You can also try setting maxPostSize at the same location. See the tomcat docs for details: http://tomcat.apache.org/tomcat-5.5-doc/config/http.html (Yes, maxPostSize defaults to 2MB, but if you are sending Unicode characters then each char takes 2 bytes, thus your assumed 1MB message might actually be 1 mega-characters, or 2MBs).

                  Sean Tindale Newbie

                  Thanks so much for that useful post. Unfortunately none of the configuration changes I made helped.

                  Here is my server.xml file. As you can see ive tried to get things going in a sort of brute force manner. Am I missing something? Thanks

                    instance must be configured separately. By default, the valve
                    shares a JBossCache with the service that supports HttpSession
                    replication. See the "jboss-web-cluster-service.xml" file in the
                    server/all/deploy directory for cache configuration details.

                    Besides the attributes supported by the standard Tomcat
                    SingleSignOn valve (see the Tomcat docs), this version also
                    supports the following attributes:

                    cookieDomain see above

                    treeCacheName JMX ObjectName of the JBossCache MBean used to
                    support credential caching and replication across
                    the cluster. If not set, the default value is
                    "jboss.cache:service=TomcatClusteringCache", the
                    standard ObjectName of the JBossCache MBean used
                    to support session replication.

                          All I can suggest is playing around with the settings to see if it changes anything. Beyond that, I'm stumped. Perhaps someone else has some suggestions.

                            Well it would appear that after the appropriate number of restarts it works! Not sure what I did wrong, I must not have saved the server.xml file or something... Also this server is a vmware image so maybe it is something to do with the load on the host OS?

                            Anyway I will continue to monitor the situation.

                            Thanks for your help PeterJ!!!
