Subject Re: HTTPClient - Tomcat 4 stop/restart problem
Date Thu, 03 Jun 2004 22:18:24 GMT

My guess (but only a guess) is that the connection manager still holds a
number of open connections. This is a well known problem that has been
already solved but the version containing the fix has not been released
yet (going to be 2.0.1)

For more details about the fix see

You can get nightly builds containing the fix here
