[Solved] Client crashes after Server crash


I have the problem that my client crashes after its connection to the server was cut (due to unexpected server shutdown),

I get the following output:

[java]21.06.2012 21:28:05 com.jme3.network.base.DefaultClient handleError

SCHWERWIEGEND: Termining connection due to unhandled error

com.jme3.network.kernel.ConnectorException: Error reading from connection to:localhost/

Do you have any suggestions of what I can do to catch this exception and prevent the client crash?



…like you say, catch the exception?



//do network stuffs


catch(ConnectorException e){

//handle exception



Standard java knowledge, really.

That’s obvious, even for me :wink:

The problem is, that I can’t find the right place to catch the exception.

Simplified client code:

[java]public void start(){

try {

client = Network.connectToServer(config.getNameSM(), config.getVersionSM(), config.getIpAddressSM(), config.getPortTcpSM());




} catch (IOException e) {

LOGGER.warn("Unable to connect to server, due to error: " + e.getMessage());

throw new ClientNotStartableException(e);


} [/java]

Even when I just call this simplified method and don’t have any messages send between the client and the server, I get my client crashed, when the server crashes.

I think that one of the threads started by the network classes runs in the exception and so I just don’t know where I could catch the exception…

You can add an error listener to the client.


The actual networking is done on background threads so there is no way to try/catch anything. When you send() a message it’s actually just sticking it into an outbound queue.

Thanks a lot.

That was exactly what I needed. :slight_smile:
