Hi friends,

I'm facing a very strange problem...

I consume a webservice from within my rails app. I've written a thin
wrapper around the webservice using Net::HTTP.post_form

However, when calling the API from within my controllers, the API calls
randomly fail, complaining about timeout.

But - when I wrote a simple iterative test (500 iterations), calling the
same webservice using same thin wrapper (via rake) - to my surprise,
none of the calls failed.

I repeated the iterative test twice before thinking of writing to Rails
forum...

Any suggestions on what I might be doing wrong?

Thanks in advance...

Regards,
Maku

A timeout from time to time isn't something to worry about, in your
library you can just add a "retry" clause and retry a specific number
of times (maybe 2) before raising the exception to the calling code.
