             Summary: Communicate Daemon features more clearly
                 Key: DAEMON-301
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DAEMON-301
             Project: Commons Daemon
          Issue Type: Improvement
    Affects Versions: 1.0.15
            Reporter: Marko Asplund

Here're potential some suggestions for a list of features:
* automatically restart JVM if it dies
* enable secure shutdown of JVM process using standard OS mechanisms
* allow easy redirection of STDERR/STDOUT and setting JVM process name
* detach JVM process from parent process and console
* run JVM with depressed OS privileges
* record JVM process pid
