Thread: javaw.exe (JVM) does not terminate

    Default javaw.exe (JVM) does not terminate

    I have a Java application that initializes a finger scanner and stays active so other programs can call static routines to get a finger scan, etc. On command it will stop the scanner, close the JFrame, release licenses and do a system.exit();.

    However, in command line test, Eclipse debug, and live execution, the JVM does not terminate. Any suggestions on how to figure out what needs to be done would be greatly appreciated.
