I work in a large enterprise IT shop, and we are running our Java applications on WebSphere's application server.
We have observed a behavior that I want to bring to an end: If a thread times out --- most notably while making an RMI call --- the application server appears to respawn the thread and send it again, at least once if not multiple times. This behavior is difficult to reproduce, but we have been able to observe it in Production logs of requests that repeat at exactly 60-second intervals (which matches with our timeout settings).
My research has only turned up one possible parameter to adjust that might end this behavior: - com.ibm.websphere.webservices.http.requestResendEnabled
This is a tightly controlled shop, so I don't want to adjust that parameter without being fairly certain it will have the intended effect.
Has anyone else observed this behavior, and is this the right path to correct it?
