The check for net.sf.ehcache.skipUpdateCheck is done within the run method of the timer thread. This should be checked before creating the Timer thread.

We have 20 ehcache-xxx files creating 20 unnecessary timer threads checking for updates.

Review of update checker and defaults under consideration for future releases

Stevo Slavic 2011-06-22

Workaround - UpdaterChecker (TimerTask) is not instantiated if in ehcache XML configuration file(s) one explicitly sets updateCheck attribute of ehcache element to false. This attribute is optional and defaults to true.
