Can anybody please tell me what happens at the client end, when a webservice call failed due to server down. Suppose i am using a jax-rpc generated stub to call the service, what kind exception handling should be written, and how do i resubmit the request to the service again. i have browsed through lot of websites, every one says how to call the service, but no one tells what to do in case server is down, please help!!

The Web Services FAQ links to two articles explaining exception handling in JAX-RPC clients.
