Stop async tasks when server stops?

Hello, I am having some troubles getting an async task to stop when the server does.

The thread the task is running on appears to never stop, even when the server does. I know this is how Java threads work, but is it how Sponge tasks work? If so, how can I prevent this from happening?

The thread is daemon which means it will die when the main thread dies

Not sure why it’s not stopping for you. You could try listening to GameStoppingServerEvent and cancelling the task

I see, thanks for the help!

Why didn’t you use an interruption to stop the threads to allow the tasks to exit and perform cleanup logic instead of setting to daemon? I guess it’s more of a question directed at @sibomots, perhaps he would be better suited to answer this.
