In case of an orderly shutdown of GlassFish v2 it should block new incoming
requests and throw a CORBA exception with COMPLETE_NO while the shutdown is in
progress. This is documented in section "Impact of orderly shutdown" in this
document https://glassfish-corba.dev.java.net/design/orbdArchitecture.html

But the client receives an java.rmi.ServerException with a notice "server is in
STOPPING". But this exception is not a CORBA exception and so it's impossible
for the client to initiate a failover. Only if it's a CORBA exception with
COMPLETE_NO the client tries to failover, as described in this document.

The result is that all rmi-iiop calls to a server instance which is in a
shutdown in progress state will fail and will not failover to other instances.

Changed target to V3.

"Reclassifying as P4 because this issue is not deemed "must fix" for this v2.1
release whose primary release driver is SailFin.
This issue will be scrubbed after this release and will be given the right
priority for the next release."

Moved to v3.1.

Moving to P3: we should fix this in V3.1.

I decided to leave this in 3.1 for now, to remind me to look at it.

This issue is likely to have changed behavior significantly in GF 3.1.
But I cannot address this in GF 3.1, because for many other reasons,
we don't have a completely clean orderly shutdown. The asadmin command
stop-instance of course shuts down the instance, but it forces the shutdown
with a System.exit or equivalent mechanism due to some unresolved issues
with non-daemon threads.

There are also problems in the EJB container, because the EJB contained
does not shutdown the ORB. It should, and it should to this BEFORE it
undeploys EJBs and marks the container as STOPPED (or whatever the equivalent
is in GF 3.1). Consequently, I am moving this issue to GF 3.2 for further
consideration in the next release.

Excluding from 3.1 query

Moving to orb component (where it belongs).
