Thanks Scott, my initial testing indicates that ECF 0.6.0 which delivers the |
updated JmDNS jar seems to have fixed the shutdown problem.
For others out there, here is a section from a reply you sent me:
Since ECF containers (in general) can allocate system resources (like
sockets, etc) there needs to be either a) some way of explicitly freeing
those resources (e.g. dispose()) or b) some way of implicitly freeing those
resources (e.g. having ECF keep track of created containers and then calling
dispose() on any/all of them when org.eclipse.ecf stop is called...or
requiring/suggesting that provider implementations do this for any
IContainer instances that they create).
For the moment, we've chosen 'a'. This could change if appropriate, but
'a' was the initial design choice. Would appreciate feedback about this.

Yes...please do comment on this. It is easy/trivial to add support for
disposing containers automatically upon shutdown of the ECF core
plugin...is this something people think is desireable/necessary? What
Adding it won't even require an API change...which I'm sure everyone
(especialy me) are happy to hear. The more I think about it, the more
I'm inclined to have ECF shutdown automatically trigger calling of
IContainer.dispose() on containers that have been created via the
This would then be very much like the SWT 'dispose' rule: If you create
and SWT entity via a constructor, then you have the responsibility to
call dispose() yourself. If you get an SWT resource through some other
means (e.g. getFont()) then it's the responsibility of the owner to call
Analogously, ECF could adopt the rule that if you create an IContainer
via the ContainerFactory that it's ECF's responsibility to call the
dispose() upon ECF shutdown. Then, if containers happen to be created
in other ways (e.g. via their constructors), the responsibility would be
back on the calling code.
How does this sound to people?
