Subject [jira] [Created] (EXEC-59) execute() does not return if executed process spawned other processes
Date Mon, 20 Jun 2011 20:30:47 GMT
execute() does not return if executed process spawned other processes
---------------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: EXEC-59
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/EXEC-59
             Project: Commons Exec
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 1.1
         Environment: Linux x86_64
            Reporter: David Tombs
            Priority: Minor


When executing a process that spawns other processes, DefaultExecutor.execute() does not return
until these secondary processes die.

This is a problem for me because I am executing a long-running service that uses long-running
helper processes. I want to know if the service process crashes (which leaves the helper processes
running), but I never get any notice because execute() does not return. It blocks while calling
PumpStreamHandler.stop().
