Subject How to stop threads started by web service when Axis is stopped?
Date Wed, 21 Jul 2004 01:55:21 GMT
I am running Axis 1.1 with Tomcat 5.0.25 (with Java 1.4.2)

I have a web service call that starts a thread.  If axis is stopped by the 
Tomcat Web Application Manager, the thread continues to run.  It doesn't 
receive an interrupt exception.

Is there a way to have threads started by web services be stopped when Axis 
stops?
Is there a variable the threads could monitor to see if they should 
shutdown?

I created a sample .jws and client to illustrate the problem.
  cp ThreadTest.jws $CATALINA_HOME/webapps/axis
  java ThreadTestClient show

This is what I see in catalina.out

  Inside thread 7 Thread[hugh,5,Test Group]

start
  INFO: standardHost.start /axis

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks
