Solved Stop plugin from continuing to run (like System.exit) but without affecting the server

    Is there any way that I can shutdown a plugin so it doesn't continue to run without affecting the server during onEnable()?

    I used the disablePlugin method and that does disable the plugin but the code continues to run in onEnable().

    I used System.exit but obviously that terminates the entire Java process.

    Can anyone help? Thanks.

    @Blockhead7360 So you want to stop a plugin from another plugin ?

    @Caderape2 no, I just want the code to stop running. I want to run something like System.exit from my plugin but without shutting down the entire server.

    @Blockhead7360 use the key word return after disabling the plugin on your onEnable.

    edit: If you are disabling from a method outside of the onEnable, turn that method in a boolean, then you can cancel it on your onEnable

    You can use PluginMan plugin to disable your plugin, or if you need a bit of code, use the PluginManager and disable your plugin.

    @Caderape2 ahh the boolean thing is what I needed! I can't believe I didn't think of that before.
