When is “java.io.IOException:Connection reset by peer” thrown?

java.io.IOException: Connection reset by peer

The other side has abruptly aborted the connection in midst of a transaction. That can have many causes which are not controllable from the server side on. E.g. the enduser decided to shutdown the client or change the server abruptly while still interacting with your server, or the client program has crashed, or the enduser’s internet connection went down, or the enduser’s machine crashed, etc, etc.
