Error description

  • The calling code invokes a remote method and receives an
    exception with the following message:
    org.omg.CORBA.COMM_FAILURE: recv() returned zero:  vmcid:
    Apache minor code: 0x3  completed: Maybe
    
    The connection was created by one invocation and reused by
    another, but while it was being used, the finalizer of an
    object involved in the first invocation closed the
    connection.

    The calling code invokes a remote method and receives an
    exception with the following message:
    org.omg.CORBA.COMM_FAILURE: recv() returned zero:  vmcid: Apache

    The connection was created by one invocation and reused by
    another, but while it was being used, the finalizer of an object
    involved in the first invocation closed the connection.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The connection cache was re-written to use a reference-counting
    approach so that a connection does not get cleaned up while in
    use.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in fix
    pack 8.5.5.8.  Please refer to the Recommended Updates page for
