Hi all,

I'have run may thread (class implementing Runnable)using a shell script and stored the PID in a file so I can use it to stop the process using the kill command.
my thread open some resources, like an rvd (Tibco RVD), so when killing the process using the kill method, my rvd is still running.
my question is : which Exception must be catched when shutting down a java thread using the kill command line, so I can close my rvd connection int it.

Kinds regards

One option to try is to register a Shutdown Hook with JVM. In it, you can place any code that needs to be executed prior to the JVM exit.


And BTW, this is *not* really a thread issue. The "kill" command will kill the entire process -- not just a single thread.

There aren't many rules that you need to worry about here on the Ranch, but one that we take very seriously regards the use of proper names. Please take a look at the JavaRanch Naming Policy and adjust your display name to match it.

In particular, your display name must be a first and a last name separated by a space character, and must not be obviously fictitious.

Thanks!
Scott
