Hi Martin,

If you don't mind being tied to some OpenEJB code you could try  
something like this:

import org.apache.openejb.loader.SystemInstance;
import org.apache.openejb.assembler.classic.Assembler;
import org.apache.openejb.assembler.classic.AppInfo;
import org.apache.openejb.OpenEJB;

public class Shutdown {
     public static void shutdown() throws Exception {
         Assembler assembler =  
         for (AppInfo appInfo : assembler.getDeployedApplications()) {

We could probably wrap this up into a better package and allow it to  
be called from the initialContext.close() method so you don't have to  
have any OpenEJB code in your test case.

Let me know if this does the trick for you and we'll get the cleaner  
version in.
