We have recently moved our web application from Sun Application server 8.0 to Sun Application server 9.0. We have noticed that sometimes our web application hangs when switching from http to https connection. After doing netstat on the server found that lots of sockets are waiting in the CLOSE_WAIT status instead of the, I guess, the TIME_WAIT status.
Can anyone tell me the possible reasons for this and the solution to this problem.
As per some forums have also upgraded the jdk to 1.5.12 but to no avail. And there was no problem whatsoever when the application was deployed in SJAS 8.0
