This week's giveaway is in the Java/Jakarta EE forum. We're giving away four copies of Java EE 8 High Performance and have Romain Manni-Bucau on-line! See If your download servlet leaves any system resources in the wrong state you may accumulate problems that will eventually crash the server. I am thinking of stuff like:
Database connections left open Graphics contexts not cleaned up Files left open Memory allocations no longer needed but still held somewhere
Good design of your download code would prevent these problems.

Thanks Bill. That was the sort of thing I was worried about. I guess I did not make it clear that I was worried about the after effects of an aborted download.
