Getting : ERROR: Exception in request: java.net.SocketException: Connect

Hi All, Recent times I'm facing ERROR: Exception in request: java.net.SocketException: Connection reset  a lot. Everytime has to run 3 to 4 times to execute the API. I don't know what is the issue here? I tried couple of solution from internet but I couldn't fixed it. Any inputs to resolve this would be appreciated. Because it really kills the automation and has to run every API 3 to 4 times to get success.

    Hi,

     

    Are you using an IP address instead of a hostname in your requests in ReadyAPI?  If so, please use a hostname instead.

    Hi arunbharath,

    Unfortunately the error response doesnt really tell us much other thsn the http connection was reset.

    Connection reset response would typically be cos of the remote endpoint youre hitting and nothing to do with ReadyAPI!

    Is there anything that makes you think ReadyAPI! is causing your endpoint to kill the socket?

    Could your endpoint be killing the connection cos youre hammering it with ReadyAPI!?

    Have you any more data to go on than this?
    Can you check the logging on the endpoint youre hitting? There might be some indication why the connection is reset.

    Ta

      Sorry for late reply. Before trying your approach, I updated my ReadyAPI to 3.2.5. But Unfortunately after my upgrade none of my test case is running. I'm getting below exception

        Hi,

         

        Are you using an IP address instead of a hostname in your requests in ReadyAPI?  If so, please use a hostname instead.

  • HI  I am having the same issue, I have to hit the endpoint 3-4 times in ReadyAPI in order to get a successful response. However, if I use the actual UI (Mobile app) to hit the exact same endpoint it works every time.  (i.e service automation fails but UI automation pass for the same endpoint).   We are using hostname and not an IP , Thus the solution provided here don't fix the issue. We are using  Licensed ReadyAPI 3.3.0 .
