I have a Java process running and exchanging messages over ems to other components and exposing RMI services.
On an exception from ems server (i.e. when EMS connection is lost), i call System.exit(1).

There is a shutdown hook that gets called, this closes the ems connections.
After this the process keeps on running and doesn't die.

Any thoughts what could be stopping it from getting crashed?
