I have standalone application , using spring ioc in that app.
This app is executed using command prompt. When user press ctrl+c or close the command prompt, I have to add shutdown hook.
So that i can call my customised bean method.
Is it possible to achieve this functionality using spring 2.0.
while searching I got following method which is called as
but how method mentioned above will call my method.
After creating your context you would immediately register your shutdown hook like you mentioned in your previous post. I think the part you are missing is using the spring life cycle events. What you want to do is on the bean definition that needs clean up define a destroy method using the 'destroy-method=' attribute. This method will be called when that bean is destoyed during the shutdown process which is initiated bythe shutdown hook you registered when the user ctrl-c to terminate the app.
