    SOLVED: Service lifecycle

    David Grigglestone Newbie

      In the doc I see that session lifecycles are bound to the underlying HTTP session, however it is not apparent what the lifecycle of a service is.

       

      In particular I am trying to understand the correct way(s) to cleanup any threads that might be created by the service. It is not obvious to me how to get a callback when the service should be destroyed.

       

      I'd also like to understand why I see messages from the web-container (in my case Tomcat) like those below when I undeploy an example app like the stockdemo?

          For the purpose of servlet-based Errai applications, the Errai service lifecycle is tied to the HttpSesison lifecycle and dies with it.

            So two aspects:

            1. I need to find out how to get the HttpSession and tap into its lifecycle from my service .. sorry to be a dummy here!
            2. Are the "SEVERE: The web application [/errai-bus-demos-stockdemo] appears to have started a thread named [Dispatch Worker Thread] but has failed to stop it. This is very likely to create a memory leak." type messages a result of a bug in Errai .. i.e. shouldn't it clean up the threads it has created?

              This has been fixed and should show up in our next SNAPSHOT in the next few hours.

                Thanks for quick fixes .. too bad .. looks like snapshot build are failing?

                  fyi Mike .. I built and tried the latest 2.0, but still see the following when I shutdown Tomcat:

                   

                  INFO [WorkerFactory] stopping workering pool.

                    I believe these warnings can safely be ignored. It appears this is just a case of the asynchronous shutdown of the errai worker pools racing against Tomcat's check. Which is to say, the threads do get shutdown, but moments after Tomcat displays this warning.
