Subject [jira] [Commented] (GEODE-2594) Remove optional usage of Attach API
Date Fri, 10 Mar 2017 01:05:38 GMT


Kirk Lund commented on GEODE-2594:

I have added the "docs" component because this change requires additional changes to Apache
Geode documentation:

* remove tools.jar from anything (such as any instructions about adding it to the classpath)

* remove tools.jar from example output from start/status/stop commands

* deprecate use of --pid option in status locator, status server, stop locator, and stop server
-- "Deprecated: Since Geode1.2. Requires the JDK tools.jar which is not included on the classpath
by default. Use --dir instead" has been added to the output of gfsh help of these command

> This is a request to remove our optional usage of Attach API.
> Users keep running into issues caused by GFSH using the Attach API. If the user kills
a GemFire process that was started by GFSH, the Attach API leaves a java_pid file in /tmp
which prevents the Attach API from working with any future JVMs that reuse that pid. Most
users also want to use a JRE without the tools.jar.
> The only functionality that will be removed is status and stop command support for --pid
