Issue description
In the case of a connectionFailed() event, such as defined in the ClientListener interface, the JMX connection thread held by the JPPF connection is not terminated. This leads to a thread leak in case of frequent disconnections from the driver, or when the client uses a large pool of connections to the driver.

A workaround is to close the JMX connection (and terminate the associated thread) from a ClientListener as in the following code:
JPPFClient client = new JPPFClient();
client.addClientListener(new ClientListener() {
  public void newConnection(final ClientEvent event) {
  public void connectionFailed(final ClientEvent event) {
    AbstractJPPFClientConnection c = (AbstractJPPFClientConnection) event.getConnection();
    if (c.getJmxConnection() != null) {
      try {
      } catch (Exception e) {
Steps to reproduce this issue
  • start a driver
  • start a client with the following config properties:
# discovery enabled (default)
jppf.discovery.enabled = true
# 10 connections
jppf.pool.size = 10
# connection failure notification after 5 seconds
reconnect.max.time = 5
  • start an admin console and perform a server restart multiple times, with shutdown delay = 100 ms and restart delay = 6000 ms (the restart delay must be > to the reconnect.max.time, otherwise no connection failure notification will be sent.
  • take a thread dump of the client application ==> you can see many threads "JMX connection ..." that were not terminated
