You are running a server but are not in headless mode. Studdy the FAQ (or Google) on how to enable Headless-Mode and your server shall ran a lot better.

i can't simulate the situation of the JVM crash ....

however its working fine at some time ...

but before going to solve this issue ....

i have to simulate the cause for reason and when it occurs

i understand and i found out the reason for cause ......(due to headless mode of server setting)

but i can't identify when it occurs ...(since its working at some time)

but lot of time i have tried it , i can't simulate the error ....

please help me .... :?:

A headless exception is thrown if you try to instantiate a AWT-Window or AWT-Frame. Usually this is the case if you just copy&paste some demo code that extends DemoFrame or ApplicationFrame or such classes that extend Frame itself.

Show me a stacktrace and I can tell you which class is the frame ;)
