Hi, dear developers,
I noticed that at least some add-ons that are based on internet services are not able to deal with the loss of internet connectivity very well. Indeed they are spamming the openhab log with Java dumps. I noticed this behaviour with:
- Openhab Cloud Connector
- iCloud Connector
Why is this a problem? Most normal private internet connections receive a discconnect every night (to get a new IP adress from the provider). So each night my Openhab Cloudconnector complains broadly about the (intentioned) loss of connectivity. An error message would be fine, but a Java dump looks like a forgotten “error catch”.
I am curious if there is a reason for this behaviour and if I am the only one who sees a problem in that behaviour - a quick search through the community showed none results to me (although I might have chosen the wrong search terms).
