I have a 3th party vendor's servlet that registers a new virtual-machine shutdown hook. Registration does not work because Servlet engine
throws exception every time it tries to register the hook. Servlet is also a RMI client but exception comes after RMI's lookup.
Does anyone know if I'm missing some rights from java.policy or server.policy files and how to correct this problem?
My servlet engine is SunOne 6.0 and JDK is 1.3.

Permission shutdownHooks was needed in server.policy file.
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
