I am running into a peculiar situation in the production environment. I have a web-based application running on IBM Websphere Application server (v6.1). At startup, I have a servlet which loads 4 specific objects (different classes) and stores them into the ServletContext.
The problem is that in past few days one of the object from the ServletContext is getting lost. This object is used in several JSP for creating a drop-down.Since this object is lost the drop down list is not created.
At each occurrence the same object is getting lost. This object is nothing but an array of a simple bean
As far as I know, the only time that ServletContext will lose data is when the application is shutdown.
Since this is happening only in production its difficult to track down the issue in Dev environment.
