Subject Why does tomcat need a shutdown port on Windows?
Date Fri, 21 Jan 2011 04:00:47 GMT
Hi,

I am wondering why does tomcat need a shut down port on windows but
not on Unix. My guess is that UNIX has support for signals and on
shutdown you can do kill -3 to get the JVM to shutdown but windows
they can't for some reason. If anyone can shed some light on this for
me, it would be great, I am sure there are others wondering why the
shutdown port is needed.

Cheers
Adib
