Subject [jira] Created: (HADOOP-327) ToolBase calls System.exit
Date Tue, 27 Jun 2006 06:15:30 GMT
ToolBase calls System.exit

         Key: HADOOP-327
         URL: http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-327
     Project: Hadoop
        Type: Bug

  Components: util  
    Versions: 0.4.0    
    Reporter: Owen O'Malley
 Assigned to: Hairong Kuang 
     Fix For: 0.4.0

The new ToolBase class calls System.exit when the main routine finishes. That will break if
the application uses threads that need to finish before the jvm exits. The normal semantics
is that the program doesn't finish execution until all of the non-daemon threads exit (including
the main one) and System.exit should never be called except for critical errors.
