Hi Folks,

We are getting below random error while sending request from one web application to another.

It is messing up the live application only for some of the requests. Connection reset

Please suggest what could be possible reason and fixes for the above issue.

Welcome to the JavaRanch, Divya!

Socket exceptions usually mean that something broke the link between client and server. This can happen if there is a problem with the network, such as unreliable equipment or bad configuration (the MTU settings are often involved).

The other possibility for a connection reset is when it takes too long for a server to fulfil a client request. In that case, the client may timeout while waiting for the server. This can be managed by proper web application design.

Customer surveys are for companies who didn't pay proper attention to begin with.
I agree. Here's the link:
