Ive been encountering this problem lately and I don't know what causes it. I hope you can enlighten me on this. Thanks.

I do not see any exception text associated with your message. Did I miss it?

This is the exception message: "Broken Pipe Exception. Connection reset by peer". It occurs only on Linux platform. I say this because i use windows 98 during development this does not occur; i also use jakarta-tomcat-3.1 for web server for both linux and windows. And observing it, it seems to throw this exception whenever the application sits idle for a certain length of time. I'm not exactly sure as to how many hours but my guess is about 5 to 8 hours.

This may mean that the connection was closed by the client. i.e the browser was closed. It may also mean that a timeout occured.
