I'll do either of the above.

My point is that a batch file that that has 'net start phoenix' somewhat 
obscures the simplicity of the Windows commands.

If that is the case then, we should make a way for the phoenix batch 
file to read the property name from the ../conf/wrapper.conf file.

The Phoenix in James CVS, does in fact use James for the service name (I 
did the commit).  I've retired from James team support now so another 
will have to do it.

In the long term though I would hope that the James team only make a SAR 
file available for download and do not use their internal Phoenix.
