Subject RE: Shutting down one instance of tomcat 6 from a listener

Of course ... Sorry to bother ... I was catching the exceptions in order to log properly but
I was doing System.exit(1)

I'll resend the exception.
Thx a lot.

It depends on what the problem actually is, and when it occurs.

If you do all of your initialisation in a ServletContextListener and throw an exception on
fail, then the context won't start up.

This is not the same as shutting it down after a certain period of time and after a fault
condition occurs.

Where is the code which is going to shut down the application?
Presumably outside of the application itself?
