Hi all,

I'm trying to use the H2 server mixed mode in order to let multiple
applications access
the same database. The connection URL I've come up with so far is as
follows:

jdbc:h2:"local path
here";MODE=MySQL;AUTO_SERVER=TRUE;CIPHER=AES;IFEXISTS=true

When I attempt to connect to an existing database, I get the
connection broken exception.
Is this perhaps because of an invalid combination of url properties?
Or do i need
to include AUTO_SERVER in the initial connection url when creating the
database?

Thanks in advance for any help,

Bart

Could you post the exact URL, and the stack trace including the
complete message?

Maybe this problem is fixed in the newest version. What version do you use?

No, unless this connection is still open.

Hi Thomas,

sorry for the delayed response. Here is the full url:

testDB;MODE=MySQL;AUTO_SERVER=TRUE;CIPHER=AES;IFEXISTS=true

In follow up,

the version i'm using is 1.0.79 (the last stable version).

I'll try the same with the latest beta version.

The latest beta version gives the exact same problem.

Hi,

Thanks for your help! From the stack trace it looks like the following
problem occurs:

1) The server starts
2) A TCP/IP listener is started successfully
3) The database tries to connect to this TCP/IP listener (connect to
itself; a loopback)
4) This connection can't be established after many retries

It looks like a networking problem. I will change the exception
message to include more information. Is there anything special in your
network? What operating system do you use, is it running in a virtual
machine (VMWare or something similar)? What happens if you execute
"ping localhost", and "ping 127.0.0.1"?

Regards,
Thomas

Hi Thomas,

I'm running this on locally a dell laptop, windows XP, no VM. The local host can be reached normally via the browser (I'm running an Apache 2 web server).
I get the error both when connected to the network as well as without any network connection (relying solely on the local host).

Just let me know when the build contains code for more elaborate exception msg, then I'll run it to find out what is causing the problem.

Cheers,
Bart

Any thoughts on why this problem occurs? It confirms your earlier thought that the server can run, but not accept client connections.

I ran netstat -a which shows the server is listening. I also tried ports 8000 and 8080 in case of firewalling issues, but no luck either.

Any suggestions on your side?

Thanks in advance,
Cheers,
Bart

Hi,

This is strange, I don't know what the reason could be. I have a
similar result (well the IP is different - that's normal) but it works
for me and probably most others.

There is a workaround: set the system property h2.bindAddress to
"localhost" or (probably even better) "127.0.0.1".

java -Dh2.bindAddress=127.0.0.1 -cp h2*.jar org.h2.tools.Console

Could you try that and tell me if it works?

Regards,
Thomas

Hi Thomas,

I tried the workaround. In the printout I now get:

h2.bindAddress=localhost

but the error remains the same (also with using "127.0.0.1").
When I run the console program, everything seems to be working fine when i select the h2 server. I can run the example queries
and access the database. But running server mode from my java code still fails.

I will run the test program on another laptop and see if the results are different. If so, then it might be something on my development machine.

Cheers,
Bart

Hi,

The workaround doesn't do anything for the TestNetwork program, it is
only for the H2 Console. In the Console you shouldn't get that output

Do you start the server in your Java code? If yes then you also need
to set the system property, for example using the command line option
-Dh2.bindAddress as described above, or using
System.setProperty("h2.bindAddress", ...) before loading the
org.h2.Driver class (and before starting the server of course).

Regards,
Thomas

Hi Thomas,

sorry, my mistake.

I tried the workaround the way you indicated. It works like a charm! Thanks a lot for your help!
