If it's your process and you launched it using the Equinox launcher
(launcher binary or java -jar ....) I suggest defining your own Eclipse

Have a look at http://bit.ly/cPGpIq. This bundle defines a "server"
application (http://bit.ly/c8ZfZu) which simply waits for a shutdown
signal (signalShutdown). This application is executed by Equinox on
startup (similar to the workbench application). As soon as it finishes,
Equinox will shutdown cleanly. No System.exit necessary.

There is also some preliminary code for a shutdown port in there. This
shutdown signaling from an external process. That's what most Java
server processes do (eg. Tomcat).
