Stopping java web service

I have a java web service built on jaxws. This web service is installed on a unix server and runs as a process. A .net application connects to this service to access its exposed methods. Please advise how I can stop the web service when a stop request is sent from the .net application.

Thank you,

What are you using as a web service container?

Normally web applications (including web services) are not expected to be shutting down their container. For one thing, a web server may contain other webapps that might not be interested in being shut down. For another, you can shut it down, but then there's no way to start it back up again.

However, depending on what container you are running, you may still find that one or more APIs or other channels exist that permit you to initiate shutdown.

An IDE is no substitute for an Intelligent Developer.
I agree. Here's the link:
