Subject [jira] [Commented] (KARAF-3955) Use of negative shell exit codes is not delux
Date Fri, 09 Oct 2015 12:35:26 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/KARAF-3955?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14950313#comment-14950313

Jean-Baptiste Onofré commented on KARAF-3955:

As existing scripts may depend to this exit code, I prefer to keep as it's. More over, everything
which is not 0 means an error, some negative values can be used.

Right now, Karaf main can return:
- -1 if the KARAF_DATA is not a directory or if the OSGi framework can be launched
- -2 if an error occurs while shutting down the OSGi framework (at exit)
- -3 if Karaf timed out waiting the OSGi framework to stop

>            Assignee: Jean-Baptiste Onofré
>            Priority: Minor
> Main.java has a set of calls like: System.exit(-1);.
> EXIT_FAILURE is '1', not '-1', and in general negative values aren't necessary, since
the definition of 'oops' is 'not 0'. I propose that these be adjusted.
