I am new to webmathematica. I wanted to know under what circumstances can a kernel quit the processing.

Exceeding the allocated time KernelTimeLimit. –  b.gatessucks Oct 8 '13 at 10:48
i read that if the kerneltimelimit exceeds then the kernel restarts on its own and processes the input again. what if i have some code error that gets generated in webmathematica. Does the kernel quit even then? –  shiva Oct 8 '13 at 10:57
In my understanding if there is an error the calculation would stop so the kernel would not be busy. Better wait for an answer from an expert though. –  b.gatessucks Oct 8 '13 at 11:13
thanks for the answer . I hope people would look at the question –  shiva Oct 8 '13 at 12:08
