Under Windows 10, my local development Tomcat Version 8.5.11 reports a lot of warnings about not stopped threads. For example: " The web application [webdms-jadice] appears to have started a thread named [pool-1-thread-1-Logging Task Scheduler] but has failed to stop it." Our application support team reports the same issues running Tomcat within Linux. The threads reported in the log list various sources starting the threads: from libraries we use, and from Tomcat's own threads like "Timer-x", "Session pool worker", "Level-2 Pool Sweeper", " InactivityMonitor ReadCheck".
Shutting down means: pressing CTRL-C in Windows or sending a kill signal in Linux. Maybe it is not unimported that our application itself uses an Executor Service Thread pool, which - at contextDestroyed-event - tries to shutdown the pool with a timeout value of 5 minutes (which is too long, I know). The log warnings with "Thread not stopped" messages will be written to the log after this timout. Then Tomcat effectively shuts down. My question therefore is: What can we do to shutdown Tomcat in a proper manner, that is: stopping all threads from thread pools? Can this be managed by configuration or must this be done programmatically? Thanks for any ideas. Carlo
