Hi All,

The following jdk parameter will expire the IP cache in JDK 1.4.
-Dnetworkaddress.cache.ttl=60

Could you please let me know,whether this option will work in JDK 1.3 too.
or there are any other option in JDK 1.3 to expire IP cache?

Regards,

Putting "URGENT" in the topic title does not help. Remember that people answering your questions here are just volunteers who do not have any obligation to you; read this: Ease Up.

The API documentation for class java.net.InetAddress for Java 1.4.2 mention this networking property, but the documentation for Java 1.3.1 does not. So most likely this setting does not exist in version 1.3.1.

What about -Dsun.net.inetaddr.ttl parameter?
Could anyone please look into it?

Thanks,

"Could anyone please look into it?"

Why don't you look into it yourself? Type in "sun.net.inetaddr.ttl" into Google.

How about trying it out on Java 1.3 and see if it works or not?
