Subject tomcat shutdown clarification
Date Tue, 14 Aug 2012 18:21:55 GMT
When I use the script to stop tomcat, what happens?  

My understanding is as follows, please correct where wrong.

Each of the Servlet Context's, aka web apps, will have their stop lifecycle methods invoked.
 Tomcat itself will stop it's own mechanisms, such as port listeners, etc.  BUT the JVM won't
go down if there are still other threads running . . . in other words, the JVM won't go down
if you started other threads that you don't close in one of the lifecycle methods.  

Am I missing anything important?
