Hi everyone, While testing my Struts web app, I occasionally receive blank pages in the browser window and "Response already committed" messages into the log file. The format of the message in the log file is like this: "Apr 29, 2004 1:45:53 PM org.apache.jk.server.JkCoyoteHandler action - INFO: Response already commited" without any stack trace. This happens very randomly and there are no particular situations where and when it occurs. I'm not writing anything to the response in my Action classes until just calling at the end of the Actions' execute methods. In the error case, when a submit button is clicked on jsp page, the execute method of an Action class is processed normally - but instead of a target jsp page where the control was forwarded, a blank page will be shown in the browser. I wonder what causes this quite strange problem. I'm using Struts 1.1 and Tomcat 5.0.19 on Linux server. Could one of these cause the problem? I've also posted this message to Struts forum.
I really don't know struts, so forgive me if this is 'not possible'.
I once had a problem with partial pages. There would be output, and then it would just stop. I'd get 1/2 or 1/3 of a page back. The logs would have 'illegal state exception'. What was happening was that an Exception is thrown at some point after the page response has already been commited, and when the container tried to forward to my error page, the container would trigger the exception.
To solve this, although not entirely in a satisfactory way, I just increased the page buffer size.
Could the same sort of thing be happening with you? (How does struts handle exception handling? Does it buffer the page response?)
