ifs and rmi

3004 Member Posts: 204,171 Green Ribbon
i wrote a rmi-server which accesses the ifs-repositry and retrievs the folderlist (similar to the "jdb error" post). now i can call the server-method "RmiServer.list(...)" which returns a string containing some folder-names. but: trying to call that RmiServer.list() one more time causes the client to hang. i took a look at the servers thread dump and notices one differenc in the thread-lists before and after the ifs-access.
one thread seems to loop/deadlock/hang/../?.
here is the thread dump after the ifs-call:

Full thread dump:

comparing the thread dumps before and after the ifs-access differs in one thread: the rmi thread "TCP Accept-1". above shown is the dump afterwards. before ifs-access the "TCP Accept-1" thread stack is as follows:

"TCP Accept-1" (TID:0xec99d198, sys_thread_t:0xf5e10, state:R, thread_t: [email protected], sp:0xef171040 threadID:0xef171dd8, stack_base:0xef171d6c, stack_size:0x20000) prio=5

server-system: solaris 2.6, jdk: ifs' own jdk.
client-system: nt-4.0, jdk: sun jdk 1.1.6

i would be very happy for any help, so thanks in advice,

    I don't think we (Oracle) can invest the amount of time it would take to help you with this problem, since it involves RMI, which is not an Oracle product.

    My only (somewhat uninformed) thoughts are that there may be problems with the RMI itself.

    We have seen many problems with JDK 1.1.6, and recommend you using JDK 1.1.8.

    Perhaps that might help.

    i do have tried jdk 1.1.8.
    it brings the same problems.
    on the other hand: running the client-programm on the sun-box (the rmi- and ifs-server) with the ifs' own jdk causes the same problems.
    at the moment i'm going on my own network-protocoll.
