Application stability when linked application crashes

I have noticed that when JIRA crashes it usually takes out Confluence as well because the two applicaitons are linked and we have JIRA content showing in Confluence. We mainly notice this on large installations. What strategies are people using to avoid this codependence?

There are a couple of ways of handling it. One way would be to make sure to have a http proxy server between the instances and make sure to use that has the URL that you link things through. In the proxy config make sure the the proxy time outs are low. I suspect that you already have the proxy in place in which case when you have an outage and do a netstat -a and you'll probably see a bunch of connections waiting to terminate (in which case either increase the amount of threads/concurrent connections or decrease the timeout).
