Description (last modified by kmtracey)

I cannot start process as daemon.

This error is similar to this thread:

Django hangs when I execute this code:

def start(request):
        if request.user.is_authenticated():
                output = Popen(["/usr/local/tomcat/bin/"], stdout=PIPE).communicate()[0]
                foo ="a"
                return render_to_response('cms/templates/list.html', {'logs': foo})

                return HttpResponseRedirect("/accounts/login")

I'm not sure this is a bug at all. That is, Popen.communicate() is supposed to block until stdin reaches EOF ( And that's exactly what happens when I spawn processes from a Django view: when the process completes, so does the view.

I'd call this a bug, and its affecting me.

The django development server is able to start a background process, but for some reason it must block until the sub process dies. Place something like this in a view and you'll get your response 5 seconds later, Popen.communicate() is not needed to reproduce it:

subprocess.Popen(['/bin/sleep', '5'])
return HttpResponse(u'That sure took a while!')

Also see #4953 and #3712
