I have a Web app running on Apache Tomcat 6, using ZK, Hibernate and Jaybird JDBC for accessing a Firebird database. For some unknown reason, after a not yet mapped operation in the app that performs a dynamic SQL, it crashes with the following exception:
ERROR: org.springframework.transaction.TransactionSystemException: Could not roll back JPA transaction; nested exception is javax.persistence.PersistenceException: unexpected error when rollbacking javax.persistence.PersistenceException: unexpected error when rollbacking org.hibernate.TransactionException: JDBC rollback failed [SQL: 335544726, HY000] org.firebirdsql.jdbc.FBSQLException: GDS Exception. 335544726. Error reading data from the connection.
Reason: Error reading data from the connection. …
Then, any operation performed by the user after it causes the following error:
ERROR: javax.persistence.PersistenceException: org.hibernate.exception.GenericJDBCException: could not execute query org.hibernate.exception.GenericJDBCException: could not execute query [SQL: 335544721, HY000] org.firebirdsql.jdbc.FBSQLException: GDS Exception. 335544721. Unable to complete network request to host “”. Reason: Unable to complete network request to host “”.
And the system crashes down, like if it had lost the connection with the database.
Has anyone experienced it before?
After some research and tests, I’ve got to understand what was happening.
The problem was happening when a user was performing a specific search in the app using a string with size greater than the target table field’s size. So, when the system executed the HQL query with the string input as a parameter, the system crashed down – like when comparing a string with length 20 to a varchar(18) field.
The solution was simple: limit the size of the input string in the search field.
Hope this helps anyone in the future.
