Hi quick question, I have a soap server and soap client ruby scripts. When I try to run the soap client without starting up the up the server the client program crashes out, as you would expect. But I'd like to catch that exception and wait 5 min's before it tries again. so I have a little bit of code that goes. begin Timeout::timeout(900) do #try 3 times before quiting. not_connected = true while not_connected == true do begin @soap_wrp = SOAP::RPC::Driver.new("http://localhost:9001", "http://fasw111/Submit") not_connected = false puts @soap_wrp rescue SystemExit not_connected = true sleep 300 #sleep for 5 min end end #do some soap stuff rescue Timeout::Error puts "time out error" soap_wrp = -1 end But once the SOAP::RPC::Driver.new fails to find the server there seems to be a complete crashs out of the code. Does anyone know how I can get around this? Thanks. fishman2001.

If that fixed your troubles, then you know you're catching the wrong exception. Another important thing to do (obviously) is read the information on whatever is terminating execution. Aside, your timeout is not going to ensure trying 3 times. It will wait 900 seconds, but depending on how long the connection takes to timeout, your 300 second sleep will cause more troubles. What might be better is something like this: 3.times do begin @soap_wrp = SOAP::Stuff # fill in your driver here rescue Exception => e puts e # for debugging end end exit(-1) unless @soap_wrp # @soap_wrp is nil, we are not connected # rest of code.. This may look just like a shorter solution, but it solves a lot of potential problems due to eliminating unnecessary complexity.

I did this, tried to catch the exception, but it still crashes out. give the error Errno::ECONNREFUSED any ideas?

I know this is a VERY stale thread, but would this Exception actually catch a Timeout? I ask because I need to do this so our app doesn't get hung up if the webservice we are calling tips over. Perhaps (likely) there is something obvious I have just not seen, but it seems like this should be fairly trivial to do. -jay
