What do the logs say? We had a similar problem with WebLogic server and we found out that there was something wrong with the os.

Are you doing any native specific processing in your application? If yes this might give you some hints: http://www.jboss.com/index.html?module=bb&op=viewtopic&t=85295
What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

>> Runtime shutdown hook called, forceHalt: true

That probably means that the process was forced to be stopped by something (like the OS) externally. Maybe you had some software updates on the OS which caused all processes to be aborted.
