Local fix

Problem summary

  • The servants were not getting unexported when WAS was shutdown,
    causing the ORB Keep Alive thread to be active which prevented
    the Java process to exit.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The task of unexporting the servants lies with the application,
    however in case where that fails the ORB will explicitly
    unexport any application/WAS exported servants at shutdown.
    .
