Hi All,

In this program that I am writing I use a http client for sending secured requests to a remote server.
I have no idea what implementation is on this server but I know from its logs that it recieves my requests.

Problem is that once in a while I see in the httpclient log file that the socket is stale. On the server logs I see a request rejected (authentication failed as no user/password sent) but immediately sent again with the needed credentials and the request is processed succesfully. (In my code I do NOT send the request twice if an error occurs so I believe this is the mechanism of httpclient)

My question is :

Who is the one making the connection stale ? Is it the client or the server and how can I control it ?

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
