I working with N threads and it happens just sometimes not in a specific time( X minutes)

I try with diferent driver but i can't solve the problem.


You're most likely either

  1. Opening sockets and not closing them. Over time the number of open sockets gets too large and the application crashes.
  2. You're opening way too many sockets at the same time. Maybe because you have a ton of threads.

I'm going to guess it's #1. Double check your code and make sure that you close all your Connection objects and ResultSet objects.

If you're running into #2 then you may want to consider using fewer threads (after a certain point having too many threads does more harm than good) or using a connection pool like c3p0 which will only create a set number of connections and allow your threads to share them. Using c3p0 is a good idea in general and should also allow you to detect #1 faster.

A third option is to use a higher level abstraction such as JPA or JDO which will take care of connection management for you.
