This is a really interesting point. Lots of systems have a "vetoable
shutdown about to happen", "non-vetoable shutdown about to happen",
"non-vetoable shutdown imminent" set of events:
- Unix traditionally used wall(1)
- Windows and OS X apps ask you "Save this document before quitting?"
- OS X on shutdown or restart gives apps a chance to abandon or delay
Stepping back from the immediate problem, the "real" solution is to have
the JVM and .NET virtual machines grow up and behave like proper systems,
complete with lifecycle events. Then, AMQP connections have a chance to
clean up and disconnect on their own, without special action on the part of
the programmer and without unduly delaying or preventing VM shutdown.
Thinking on it, lifecycle events like these are probably already present in
the .NET world actually. Does anyone know where to look?
