Subject RE: [Patch] cocoon.bat issues
Date Sat, 15 Mar 2003 18:13:34 GMT
Duh, I've used command switches before in DOS! I guess I just didn't
recognize THOSE switches, (not have moved to NT or XP yet) so I was thrown
off. My bad! Fix works just fine.

I had another question I forgot to address in my original message. When
starting up Jetty with cocoon.bat a message is displayed: "Use SHUTDOWN to
close normally. Use [Ctrl]+[C] to abort abruptly." Like many others, I used
Tomcat before switching to Jetty; Tomcat has a startup.bat and shutdown.bat.
Is this a legacy message? Or is SHUTDOWN a reference to using the NT/XP Task
Manager to shut it down (missing from Windows ME)?

My understanding is that in my case I have to do a CTRL-C to shutdown the
Jetty process. I feel it's cleaner, though, the Tomcat way--where it spawns
another session and a startup/shutdown in process A opens and then closes
process B.
