Class ShutdownHandler

  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    Handler, HandlerContainer, Container, Destroyable, Dumpable, Dumpable.DumpableContainer, LifeCycle

    public class ShutdownHandler
    extends HandlerWrapper
    A handler that shuts the server down on a valid request. Used to do "soft" restarts from Java. If _exitJvm is set to true a hard System.exit() call is being made. If _sendShutdownAtStart is set to true, starting the server will try to shut down an existing server at the same port. If _sendShutdownAtStart is set to true, make an http call to "http://localhost:" + port + "/shutdown?token=" + shutdownCookie in order to shut down the server. This handler is a contribution from Johannes Brodwall: Usage:
     Server server = new Server(8080);
     HandlerList handlers = new HandlerList();
     handlers.setHandlers(new Handler[]
     { someOtherHandler, new ShutdownHandler("secret password", false, true) });
     public static void attemptShutdown(int port, String shutdownCookie) {
     try {
     URL url = new URL("http://localhost:" + port + "/shutdown?token=" + shutdownCookie);
     HttpURLConnection connection = (HttpURLConnection)url.openConnection();
     connection.getResponseCode();"Shutting down " + url + ": " + connection.getResponseMessage());
     } catch (SocketException e) {
     logger.debug("Not running");
     // Okay - the server is not running
     } catch (IOException e) {
     throw new RuntimeException(e);

        public ShutdownHandler​(Server server,
                               java.lang.String shutdownToken)
        Creates a listener that lets the server be shut down remotely (but only from localhost).
        server - the Jetty instance that should be shut down
        shutdownToken - a secret password to avoid unauthorized shutdown attempts

        shutdownToken - a secret password to avoid unauthorized shutdown attempts
        exitJVM - If true, when the shutdown is executed, the handler class System.exit()
        sendShutdownAtStart - If true, a shutdown is sent as an HTTP post during startup, which will shutdown any previously running instances of this server with an identically configured ShutdownHandler

        Description copied from interface: Handler
        Handle a request.
        Specified by:

        handle in class HandlerWrapper
        target - The target of the request - either a URI or a name.
        baseRequest - The original unwrapped request object.
        request - The request either as the Request object or a wrapper of that request. The HttpConnection.getCurrentConnection().getHttpChannel().getRequest() method can be used access the Request object if required.
        response - The response as the Response object or a wrapper of that request. The HttpConnection.getCurrentConnection().getHttpChannel().getResponse() method can be used access the Response object if required.
        Throws: - if unable to handle the request or response processing
        javax.servlet.ServletException - if unable to handle the request or response due to underlying servlet issue
