Literally, this is what it means: Minor code: 3 Static variable: com.sun.rmi.util.MinorCodes.WRITE_ERROR_SEND Explanation: An error was encountered while writing the request to the output stream.
Practically.. this error is encountered when a java process is trying to talk to a handle of an object when the handle itseld has been removed. Common occurrence is when u have a generic JVM trying to communicate with a EJB in websphere (Both the generic JVM and App Server are in the same context), and for whatever reason the websphere instance goes down, the generic JVM process would no longer be able to communicate with the EJB's. Then the COMM_FAILURE is raised. Here's an excerpt from an article i read not too long ago: "Minor codes are associated with CORBA exceptions and provide greater detail about the errors that can occur. There is not a one-to-one mapping of exception names to minor codes. Rather, a minor code can be associated with several exception names. A minor code message can have different meanings depending on the exception that was thrown. Minor codes are scoped to System Exceptions in the range 0 to 4095. A minor code ID must be a unique number within the scope for each System Exception; however, there is no restriction that minor codes be unique across all System Exceptions"
