Subject Re: Can we stop tomcat using System.exit(int)
Date Tue, 07 Feb 2006 09:23:10 GMT
Just my 2 cents,
Have you tried to set priviledged to true in webapp context?
Also you may need to play a bit with the security manager as J2EE specs
does not endorse the use of System.exit in a webapplication. a écrit :

>My web application requires database pool connection while startup, when
>it fails for any reason I need to stop the tomcat server as well.
>I have used System.exit(int); int here I tried with Zero and non-zero
>The result is tomcat gets hung.
>I understand it has to do with Java rather than Tomcat, however I'm
>looking for a suggestion to stop tomcat in a way similar to the above.
>I have learnt to stop tomcat
>a) programmatically using Bootstrap classes, (stops successfully only if
>you start programmatically)
>b) by invoking
>c) by connecting to the server at port 8005, and send the shutdown
>All the above methods have yielded the same result, moreover it would
>make my application coded specific to tomcat or Linux;
>I have also googled with the phrase "~tomcat crash", "stop ~tomcat",
>"system.exit ~tomcat", ""system.exit ~jvm""; to at least find out that
>the task cannot be done, however it helped me a little.
>Here are the versions of server, os and java I'm using.
>Tomcat: 5.x
>OS : Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS 3.0
>Java: 1.5
>Can somebody help me regarding the same.
