Here I am again :s
This time I'm having problems stopping Swing stuff
What I'm doing now is displaying a splash screen in swing when my app start (it has loading bars and stuff so don't suggest using anything other than swing). Then when my application is loaded and updated I need to close the swing stuff and then I start drawing on the screen with JME (Java Monkey Engine). However I can't call System.exit(0); when I want the swing stuff to stop because my application has to stay running. At the moment I call splashFrame.dispose(); to try and stop everything but that doesn't work (splashFrame is the JFrama in which everything happens). I just stop drawing the frame without stopping the AWT threads and as a result if I stop JME my application seems to have stopped but it stays running in the background.
Anyone knows a way of stopping all the swing stuff without calling System.exit(0);?

I thinks I'm starting to get stupid :s
Disregard my post people. The reason that my application doesn't stop was that the threads in my ExecutorService weren't deamon threads :s
