Error occuring when using the sql plugin in confluence 3.5


I've been using the sql plugin in our confluence instance for a while.

However, when the page which uses the sql plugin hasn't been used for a while, is accessed again for the "first time" I get an errormessage that says:

" ibmdb2jcct4203011211 A communication error has been detected. Communication protocol being used: TCP/IP.

Communication API being used: SOCKETS. Location where the error was detected: T4Agent.sendRequest().
Communication function detecting the error: OutputStream.flush(). Protocol specific error codes Broken pipe, *, 0. Message: Broken pipe"

Actually the last part of the error message seems to vay a bit, but the first bit about being a communication error is constant, seems to be some sort of error from the database driver, but why it is occuring?

If I reload the page, the errormessage disappears and the plugin behaves as it is supposed to.

Any ideas on how to get rid of the errormessage??

Thanks in advance

Look at your db2 datasource configuration in server.xml. Maybe adding a validationQuery would help.


That did the trick :)
