[SOLVED] Creating server after server has been closed throws error

OK, so I am probably doing something that I am not supposed to do. But I have a reload function in my server that unloads all systems, including closing all servers, then loads them back up again.
I am running into an issue where then my server gets created again, I get this error:

java.lang.RuntimeException: Serializer registry locked trying to register class:class com.jme3.network.message.SerializerRegistrationsMessage
    	at com.jme3.network.serializing.Serializer.registerClassForId(Serializer.java:210)

    	at com.jme3.network.Network.createServer(Network.java:95)

This is the server creation code:

server = Network.createServer(getWorld().getName(), getWorld().getVersionId(), getPort(), getPort());

The server has been closed prior to running this line, I have confirmed that. How to I get around this?

Hey @tlf30,

try putting that line right before you close your server with server.close():


Hope this helps.

Best regards

@Domenic thanks for the reply, unfortunately that did not work.

This is what my unload now looks like:

    public void unload() {
        if (server != null) {
        server = null;
        loaded = false;
        LOGGER.log(Level.INFO, "Server {0} stopped on port {1,number,#}", new Object[]{getName(), getPort()});

This is what my load looks like:

    public void load() {
        if (server != null || loaded) {

        //-- REGISTER Messages
        if (!registered) {
            registered = true;

        try {
            server = Network.createServer(getWorld().getName(), getWorld().getVersionId(), getPort(), getPort());
            LOGGER.log(Level.INFO, "Server {0} running on port {1,number,#}", new Object[]{getName(), getPort()});
        } catch (IOException ex) {
            Logger.getLogger(JmeServer.class.getName()).log(Level.SEVERE, null, ex);
        loaded = true;

I also had the same issue with the registration, thus the flag to check if I have already registered the message classes.

What if you put the following line before you create the server (Network.createServer(port))

That worked like magic! Now I don’t need the flag to check if the messages are already registered. Thank you!
