Hi !

----

I figured out a problem with jigsaw and servlets:

If a servlet does not .close() the output stream, jigsaw seems to run
out of open files
after some - ähm - xxxx service cycles. This problem mainly occurs if a
servlet
throws a ServletException (or any other Exception); and some other
servlet examples
simply missing a .close() statement.


Solution: jigsaw's ServletOutputStream should check if the stream was
closed or not
(e.g. a method like out.wasClosed()).
A non-closed stream should be closed, but a warning should be written to
stderr and
servlet log (except a ServletException was thrown; I don't know whether
the servlet
specs saying something  about this case or not...).


Maybe my previous problem with SocketException was caused by this
problem...

Bye,
Roland
