Subject Killing endless loop servlet - howto ? killing JVM or unload class ?
Date Fri, 29 Jun 2001 21:28:36 GMT

 Hi all,
I'm rolling out a successful Tomcat instalation in a shared environment ( it's a great software
! ). But I have a concern. 
I created a servlet that loops forever ( a very stupid one, by the way ). When I executed
it, it allocates a Tomcat thread and it just runs forever. If I try to kill it after it consumed,
let's say, 30 seconds of processing, it ended up killing the whole JVM. 
First, I don't know if it's killing a thread is the right approach. Should I do that, without
shutdown Tomcat ? Is there a way to set a 'time-out' for a Servlet ? What I can do in this
situation ? Is there an Interceptor that can unload this class somehow ?
Thanks in advance 
Renato - Brazil
P.S. I'm running Linux, kernel 2.4.3, Tomcat 3.2.2
