      Description

      We use Hudson to start a Tomcat application server before tests are running. The freestyle project uses
      an ant target for this with "fork=true" and "spawn=true", because we want to keep the Tomcat running
      after the build.

      Since Hudson version 1.284 it kills the tomcat-process after the build finished, even if the spawn
      option is set.

      Is there an option in Hudson available that prevents the process-killing?

      Thank you
      Timo Meinen

            set the environment variable BUILD_ID to something like 'dontKillMe' in the
            process that should stay alive.

            Hudson looks for that environment variable when cleaning up stray processes.
