This week's book giveaway is in the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum. We're giving away four copies of Refactoring for Software Design Smells: Managing Technical Debt and have Girish Suryanarayana, Ganesh Samarthyam & Tushar Sharma on-line! See this thread for details.
I just did a quick check and on my development machines, the open file limit is 1024. And that's with Maven builds going on all day long. Only my database servers actually override that limit.
You might want to check to see what your Maven build is doing that would run out of files when you have a limit of 3072 - about 3 times what I have. Maybe a plugin is being sloppy about closing files when it's done using them.
Customer surveys are for companies who didn't pay proper attention to begin with.
I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
