Subject [jira] (MSHARED-295) Non reliable killing of processes by CommandLineUtils
Date Mon, 09 Sep 2013 22:15:52 GMT
Andrey Klochkov created MSHARED-295:

             Summary: Non reliable killing of processes by CommandLineUtils
                 Key: MSHARED-295
             Project: Maven Shared Components
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: maven-shared-utils
            Reporter: Andrey Klochkov

CommandLineUtils is used in Maven-Surefire to start forks which execute tests. It is a well
known issue that sometimes child processes are not killed correctly. This is a known limitation
of JVM, and the only reliable way to implement it would be platform specific.

Bug report in Surefire JIRA:

JVM bug report. It's Windows specific, but the problem exists on Linux and OSX as well.

I'm proposing either 1) to implement several platform specific implementations of ProcessHook
or 2) to make the mechanism of killing processes extendable for clients of the library.
