Subject TC4 Slow shutdown and no restart
Date Fri, 04 Jan 2002 19:43:11 GMT

When trying out different setups with Tomcat 4 there's a repeated need to
restart it. As far as I understand there is no "" command. Why?

After running there's a period of about 10 seconds before Tomcat
actually stops. If is run before that, it results in errors and
strange behaviour (because of already bound ports i guess).

	- Write a script. Something better than "; sleep 15;". 15 seconds is a long time when Apache can restart in one
second. Best would of course be to implement a restart function in TC
itself, something to reopen all logs and reread all configuration files.
	- If possible, make the shutdown process quicker.
	- Let hang (wait) until TC actually quits running, this at
least prevents the user from trying to start it again before it's completely
dead, thereby causing strange errors.

Best regards,
