Subject Re: Trivial embedded broker not shutting down cleanly because of lingering threads
Date Wed, 13 Jan 2010 18:52:51 GMT
Do you actually call stop() on the broker ? - Have you disabled the  
shutdownHook from the broker ?
If you could post your code - or sample of it - might help identify  
why your main isn't shutting down
