Long no hear!
Is this test failing for you? I've never seen this test fail so I would
be interested to get the details (specifically which operating
In any case, I don't see any obvious problem with the test. At the place
you reference the group is shutdown but hasn't terminated. "listener" is
the only remaining open channel in the group at that point. An accept
operation is initiated on "listener". This doesn't complete immediately
because there isn't any connection to accept so testing that the
Future's timed-get throws TimeoutException is a valid test. You are
right, that if this is replaced with a non-timed get when it would wait
Let me know if any of these tests are failing.
