In our project, we are using EhCache with Hibernate. Also we are using spring 2.0. When we are trying to shutdown application using tomcat, we are getting an error saying “java.lang.IllegalStateException - Cache is not alive”. Could you please let me know how to get out of this situation? Sourceforge Ticket ID: 2537692 - Opened By: kemparajuknk - 26 Jan 2009 13:43 UTC

If you tell me the version of ehcache you are using that might help.

The Exception is caused by an access to a Cache after it has been shutdown. This is what should happen. The question is why is an access to a cache happening after a shutdown. A stack trace would help.

What you are seeing is not a bug, but rather an interaction between Spring, Hibernate, Tomcat and Ehcache. Please post to the forum with your stack trace or create a support contract.
