Is it possible to stop the server with a gracefull shutdown (WebSphere 5)?

Please explain. What problem are you having shutting it down?

I assume you mean this:

Have a look in the WAS_HOME\bin directory - there's a bunch of useful batch files in there.

If you stop the server, will the current httpsessions be destroyed?

In my company we have made an application for WebSphere 3.5. This application ensures that no new httpsessions will be created on a particalur server. When all session are invalid, the server stops. The application is called "Gracefull shutdown". I was wondering if this functionality is now part of WebSphere 5.

And tell us what platform you're on.

Johannes,
You could use a session listener to track how many open sessions there are. When there aren't any left, the listener could call an xmlconfig file. The XML config file could actually shut the server.
