Hi All,

I've ran into a bit of a problem, I have a servlet loaded via context listener.

If the context is destroyed for any reason, I want to send an email to myself warning me that its no longer running..

However, during testing when I stop the application, the mail cannot be sent..

I'm using javax.mail to send which I thought would run totally independant of my webapp but when its trying to send its outputting a load of errors to my log.. e.g.

INFO: Illegal access: this web application instance has been stopped already. Could not load META-INF/javamail.providers

Anyone any insight on why this would be happening ?

Thanks

I don't know what this means. Please explain.

How are you detecting this situation?

I'm using javax.mail to send which I thought would run totally independant of my webapp but when its trying to send its outputting a load of errors to my log.. e.g.


If you are running the code in a servlet or listener, how could it be independent?
