Subject System.exit in axis code
Date Sun, 22 Jun 2003 21:08:49 GMT
On line 106 of, there is a System.exit(-1) in the static
initialiser.  I am not yet certain whether or not it is related, but my web
service client has begun exiting every time it tries to make a RPC call.
The only way the JVM could exit here is via a System.exit() or a JVM crash,
since I have surrounded this block with a catch Throwable and write a log
message (which does not appear).

Regardless of whether or not this piece of code is the culprit, I hardly
need to point out that putting System.exit in server-side code is _always_
a terrible idea.  Bearing in mind that you are sharing your runtime
environment with any number of other apps, you are basically saying that if
your code won't work, no-one else's code will either.

So, /please/, replace this System.exit() with an appropriate exception and
/please/ do not put in any more System.exit()'s outside of a command-line
main method!

Here is a quick hack fix for  There seems to be a similar
problem with, but I have yet to investigate that properly.
