Subject Re: synchronous stop of tomcat
Date Fri, 07 Sep 2007 11:36:28 GMT

Have been looking at the source, although not documented (for TC5.5), it
seems that it is possible to nest a Listener element
(org.apache.catalina.LifecycleListener) under the Server element as 
http://tomcat.apache.org/tomcat-5.5-doc/config/context.html described here
for nesting within Context elements.
This could be used to provide a more elegant way of receiving notification
of when the server has stopped.

However, still not synchronous, looking at JMX for that, seems like I just
need to invoke StandardServer.stop()
