Moran,

How you were actually constructing the ThreadPoolExecutor?

allowCoreThreadTimeOut


  I have noticed some strange behavior using the ThreadPoolExecutor when
moving to java 1.6 (1.6.0_02-b06 on windows xp)

  Core pool threads were being terminated although I was explicitly setting
the core pool size:



  ThreadPoolExecutor(int corePoolSize, int maximumPoolSize, long
keepAliveTime,  TimeUnit unit,

                                BlockingQueue<Runnable> workQueue,
ThreadFactory threadFactory)



  I noticed it when JConsole was up and monitoring the thread consumption.
After my 1 min timeout, all threads were terminated.



In 1.6, the new allowCoreThreadTimeOut(boolean value) will in fact explain
this behavior if value is set to true - But I am not explicitly calling it,
but instead using the constructor above.

I should not that on a linux running 1.6.0-rc-b104 it seemed to have behaved
as expected.Is anyone aware of such a fix or a known issue?  Thanks in
advance.
