Subject Re: When executing commands using karaf's bin/shell there is a huge delay before the command exits.
Date Sun, 17 Jun 2012 18:28:10 GMT
System.exit is of course a way to make sure you get a fast exit. The 
problem is that if something is to be cleaned up in the background it 
will simply be cut off.

So the cleaner way is to not use System.exit and make sure our 
background threads terminate fast. This can be a bit tricky though :-)
