Great. Where can I find the code for this and how is it enabled? Is there any documentation of that feature? > You don't want to use it though. In my testing the JVM crashed about 50% of the time. I don't understand this. It should definitely not crash. (It might (but should not) leak resources however...) > Better to fix the thread leak. For sure. > Tomcat will also tell you which threads weren't stopped along with a bunch of other memory leak checks. Where can I find this? I would be very much interested. Never seen that. Beside my interest for all the above, my webapp has a plugin mechanism that also has to be able unload plugins, so I am working on code to make that really happen. Relying on these plugins developers is not that good idea. BTW: I am also planning on deadlock detection and on restarting blocking modules. Regards, Steffen
