The following code snippet works fine when it is run as a standalone program on my Linux machine. When run as a servlet under tomcat 5, it throws: java.io.EOFException : unexpected end of input stream.

Now if I run it as a servlet on my Windows machine it works fine.

Windows
Tomcat 5.5
JVM : 1.4.2_11

Linux
Tomcat 5
JVM 1.4.2_05

The exception started happening after we installed a new Linux kernel including jvm and tomcat5. Could the different versions of jvm or tomcat (they are pretty close)be the problem, or do you think it is with Linux?

try {
serviceURL="https://trans.sym...........
URL u = new URL(serviceURL);
URLConnection connection = / u.openConnection();
connection.setDoInput(true);
connection.setDoOutput(false);
InputStream is = connection.getInputStream();
return is;
} catch(Exception anything) {
System.out.println(anything);
}
