Subject [jira] [Commented] (DAEMON-258) prunsrv to block until start method returns
Date Mon, 11 Mar 2013 14:01:13 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DAEMON-258?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13598827#comment-13598827

Mladen Turk commented on DAEMON-258:
------------------------------------

I'm afraid we can't solve this issue.
The problem is that we must report service as started when we start JVM because we wait on
its return value forever, so in good case we would never report service as started.
Not sure if there is some API or option so we instruct scm to refresh its state because it
seems that's the only way this can be solved.

> Currently, when starting a windows service from the service control panel based on prunsrv
using the JVM.dll the start method is called in a separate thread.  Upon calling this thread,
the service is marked as "started" in the service control panel.  This is confusing, as if
something goes wrong in the program start-up sequence (e.g. a database connection is unavailable)
then the program will fail to start successfully but the user will not get any indication
of this (they have to press "refresh" in the windows services window to see the service failed
to start).
> It would be better to have an option to report the "service" as "starting" while the
"start" method is running and only when the method returns, mark the service as "started"
or "stopped" depending on a return code from the "start" method.
