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
                 URL: https://jira.codehaus.org/browse/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:
http://jira.codehaus.org/browse/SUREFIRE-773

JVM bug report. It's Windows specific, but the problem exists on Linux and OSX as well.
http://bugs.sun.com/view_bug.do?bug_id=4770092

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.
