Subject Re: running out of filehandles
Date Tue, 07 Jan 2014 23:30:23 GMT

Can you try trunk to see if the problem also happens then? There was a 
fix by Alexios Giotis regarding open files that may be relevant for your 
case, but I think it happened after the 1.1 release.

Possibly what is happening is that the files are being left open always. 
If the image exists, then it is cached by FOP, and the next time time 
requested FOP uses the cached image instead of opening a new connection. 
If the image does not exist, FOP keeps opening new connections (since no 
image was cached) until you run out of file handles.

bytes to the ServletOutputStream.  I verified that I close all resources in a finally  block
(I do not, of course, close the Output Stream). If the file does not exist, I return a 404
not found in the response.

production environment they never had this problem.  Is it possible that the URL resource
(and/or the ServletOutputStream) is not being closed when the response is 404 not found?
