Subject RE: Shutdown Tomcat
Date Wed, 31 Oct 2001 18:42:36 GMT
I see the same problems that Evan mentions (solaris). It takes about 30-45
seconds to shutdown on a devel server with no users and only 1 (albeit
large) servlet and a few dozen JSPs. Don't have any JDBC connections or
anything else like that.

Similarly, startup takes about 15-20 seconds. On windows it takes about 5

  I've got Tomcat 4.0.1/JDK1.3.1_01 shutting down happily on Solaris x86
just spiffy like. It does seem to take it a while to spool everything
down. Currently it's only loading about 10 servlets and if I tail the
output log as the thing is shutting down I can see it hitting all the
destroy() methods and shutting down JNDI, JDBC and LDAP connections.
Make sure that all your servlets clean up after themselves and it should
shutdown fine.
