Just a FYI to the team, I found the reason for a few issues we have had on the testsuite. (Locator still running and files still open).
The Bridge will stop and close the connection factory, in certain cases the response will come after the stop was issued, then the connection factory will close the channel on Netty. as a Result the thread will be interrupted and we will have a few issues on leaving files and servers open because of the interrupt.
I thought maybe it was caused by a newer version of Netty, but the previous version was doing the same. So, I will make changes to proper stop the bridge and not having IO through Interrupted threads.
