hi all,
i am having a very odd problem.
using jrun3.1, i am developing a signin servlet that takes a number of paramenters, some 'posted' some 'gotten'.
intermittently, without any particular pattern, about 20-25% of the time, the servlet does not get the posted data (gets nulls instead of strings) though the posting page itself has a javascript that ensures nonnull fields, checks for '@', etc.
the only pattern to this madness is that immediately after such an incident, it always works fine.
any clues?
all help and input is deeply appreciated.
sanjay

i am still struggling with this problem.
i have narrowed down the problem a bit. there seems to be something up with the ssl interaction. we use a single security certificate from verisign for our production and development sites. in our development sites, it generates an error because the site url does not match the license. whenever this occurs, the servlet gets no data. if i can bypass this by fiddling with the domain, the error disappears.
what could be going on?
again, would appreciate any input.

considered clearing your cache ?
caching is always an issue to consider in these sort of erroneous outcomes.

Have you contacted Allaire? This sounds like a good question for their support group.

Yes, I have cleared the cache. In fact, that is necessary as it is only the first time the certificate is loaded that the invalid site certificate warning pops up.
An interesting development is that the latest version of IE does not have this problem. Even with the warning, the data goes through. So it seems to have been a browser problem.
But yes I have posted this on the Allaire support forum.
But I still wonder why would a warning cause the request object to get lost.
