Were you using WebSphere? If so, why is this specific to WebSphere? It
would be nice if somepne could get a capture of that exception. We really
should look at this closer.


A program should be written to  model the concepts of the task it
performs rather than the physical world or a process because this
maximizes the  potential for it  to be applied  to tasks that are
conceptually similar and, more  important, to tasks that have not
yet been conceived.
