Subject Graceful shutdown
Date Fri, 04 Jul 2008 07:54:21 GMT


We use Tomcat 5.5.23

Using the command " stop" interrupts abruptly any working servlet
threads and stop Tomcat. 

Is there a way of shutting tomcat gracefully?

For me, an example of graceful shutdown would be:
1) The HTTP connector stop accepting new requests
2) Tomcat wait that all the servlet threads finish (without interrupting
them as it does today)
3) Shutdown the server

Thanks for your advises,


NB: I've seen that jk2 connector did something about this, but we are not
using Apache as our front end.
