Hi! I have a default cache configured to be replicated.

Its configuration:

If I shutdown the cacheManager one ReplicationThread stays alive. If I remove the replication of the default cache there’s no thread left.

Best regards

The replication thread gets started when the replicating cacheEventListener gets created. The default cache is never initialised because it is really just a template, but the CacheEventListeners do not have init.

The simple answer is to explicitly add defaultCache to the shutdown process.

I have added some code to my RMICacheReplicatorTest’s tearDown method:

    List threads = JVMUtil.enumerateThreads();
    for (int i = 0; i < threads.size(); i++) {
        Thread thread = (Thread) threads.get(i);
        if (thread.getName().equals("Replication Thread")) {
            fail("There should not be any replication threads running after shutdown");

This code failed due to the problem you reported but now passes.

The fix will shortly be in trunk and will be in ehcache-1.4.0-beta2.

Thanks for the bug report.
