Springframework shutdown in tomcat don't work

Posted on 2006-06-16

Hi everyone,

I'm using the <bean ... init-method="connect" destroy-method="disconnect"> feature in applicationcontext.xml.
While the init-method gets called the destroy method gets not touched if TOMCAT shuts down.
The framework works fine! Just this feature don't work.
Are there any other settings (except the web.xml       <listener><listener-class>org.springframework.web.context.ContextLoaderListener</listener-class></listener>  entry ) needed, to force the springframework to receive the shutdown event from tomcat?

Thanks for the help!

That gets called when the context gets shutdown, is the context getting shut down when tomcat does?

Hi objects,

I just get a
***This server has been successfully shutdown***
message, nothing else. I'm using Eclipse with MyEclipse plugin to control tomcat.
Maybe I should add a log.xml entry for the spring container?

I can't see that the context shuts down in debug mode.
How else could I see that?

I tried to implement  DisposableBean - no effect! Even this method gets not called!! So the container has no control!?
The beans I'm using are singletons by default.

Found the reason: If I call it as a service everything works fine. It seems that the MyEclipse plugin don't call the shutdown. Grrrrr.

In the meantime I got response from MyEclipse. They will fix that in upcoming Version 5 in july 2006.
