Hi all,

Need some help here. How do we kill a running threads after elapsing a settime say about 5 hours?
I want to use some JVM parameter to do this, i mean without modify code.

Any help is appreciated.

I think you're out of luck trying to kill one thread. You could kill a whole application (JVM) from the command line but that doesn't sound like what you're after.

What is the thread doing? Are you completely unable to change any code?

A good question is never answered. It is not a bolt to be tightened into place but a seed to be planted and to bear more seed toward the hope of greening the landscape of the idea. John Ciardi
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
