Subject Re: FAQ? shutdown.bat not killing java process on Windows
Date Mon, 03 Oct 2005 12:05:36 GMT
That's quite a problem ;)
Actually  your threads should be coded in such a way
you may a send a notification in java telling him to finish his job.

eg:

myNonDaemonThreadICreatedMySelf.stopWorking();
which would set some flag in Thread and then code in your
Thread reading the flag knows it has to stop in a clean way.

In the past there was a way in java to 'kill' a Thread but this has
been deprecated in the Thread api. Tomcat sends a ThreadDeathError
to the thread if it tries to interact with its classloader after shutdown,
unfortunately, this is not always enough has some Threads do a
catch(Error) and then continue their job.

The best thing you can do when you have the list of threads still alive
after shutdown is to locate the irresponsible threads and fix their code :D
