I'm new to jruby and am facing a problem which may be a bug.
In jruby 1.7.3, when making https calls the openssl throws "Bad file
descriptor" Exception when closing the connection randomly.

I made a post to stackoverflow with the code that provokes the error:

Is this a library error? Otherwise what am I doing wrong?

Please try upgrading ( to JRuby 1.7.5 and
if this error goes away.  We have fixed several to many openssl
compatibility bugs since 1.7.3 and I suspect this was one of them.

Ok, we have updated to 1.7.5 and now it works as expected.

Thanks a lot for your feedback!
